Assign $KEY_VIDEOOUT (0xaa) to run xrandr --auto

Bug Description

Binary package hint: metacity

On laptops which generate a scan code when Fn+F8 is pressed, they will generate the $KEY_VIDEOOUT key code which will be 0xaa.

On laptops which generate some other kind of event, we will fake a key press for 0xaa

So please hook the 0xaa key in the window manager to run "xrandr --auto"

This will activate any connected displays, with appropriate sizes and arrangement, etc.

As discussed this should be handled in gnome-settings-daemon.
