Description of problem:
The output of "ddcprobe --monitor" doesn't give timing modes, such as resolutions that the monitor can display that aren't standardized (e.g. VESA).
Other information such as sync and R, G, B, colorspace and Gamma values etc. would also be extremely handy when trying to autogenerate configurations (i.e. xorg.conf, etc).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "ddcprobe --monitor"
2. look for timing, gamma values, resolution modes, etc.
Actual Results: Don't get the timing, gamma value, resolutions, etc.
Expected Results: The missing information should be given.
This probably won't be added at any point in the near future. Especially since
the DDC code is so limite architecturally, it's best to get the recognition done
in the driver itself.
