You should clarify what's our recommended way to do local
configurations: either all in the old /etc/X11/xorg.conf and
leave /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ up for preset configuration files from
distribution packages or people should use several or one file their own
in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

I have used /etc/X11/xorg.conf that works very well on my notebook and
leaves all space for distribution files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/. Arch
planet already shows the 2nd way:

I think we should only recommend one way.
