Yes, but this sucks for xdm logins. Or when you already have a complete
X session running.

The only thing necessary would be a way to lock the mouse cursor to the
current display. That way, on can always boot the dual-head setup but
fix the mouse cursor to the LCD only. When the need for actual Dualhead
arises, one simply releases the cursor and can then move it off screen.

Or is such a thing already possible?

Does the Svideo port actually work under FreeBSD? That's probably the
only thing I boot windows for: hooking up the laptop to a TV.
