Bug Description

Binary package hint: x11-xserver-utils

When using xrandr --below or --above, it would be convenient to have an option to horizontally center the added screen, rather than the current left-aligning. If I want to center, I have to calculate the center position myself.

Most people with vertically stacked dual screens will more or less center them.

Hi launchpad-net-schildbach,

Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (and maybe Xorg.0.log.old) file from after reproducing this issue. If you've made any customizations to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well.

Hi Bryce, why are you setting this to incomplete?

This sounds like a feature worth including in libxrandr-utils.
