Reducing the color depth to 16 allows the wimpy Rage XL (8 MiB) to do 1920x1080.

So then I moved the old slow X terminal out of the way and moved the shiny new
Dell ST2220T LCD into the prime spot in front of the keyboard drawer...
...and the cable doesn't reach. Two HD-15 to BNC cables back-to-back fixed
that, but now it doesn't do the DCC/EDID stuff, so I had to get it to use a
modeline to get 1920x1080. And of course it doesn't go into standby mode.  sigh

Still have some minor issues like finding a decent font for xterm, and putting
a window at +0+0 hides a few pixels off-screen, and FreeBSD can't tell the
difference between a Unix keyboard and a pee-cee keyboard, but it is usable.

Thanks for the help!
