The idea there was to do something guaranteed to work.  Maybe we should
change the default behaviour to toggle between LCD-only and VGA-only.
Trying to support a "shared" mode is just more hassle than it is
worth.  Then we can do something like:

case $? in
        xrandr --output VGA --off --output LVDS --auto
        xrandr --output LVDS --off --output VGA --auto

People wishing to override this with their own can just muck directly
in vga-toggle.sh themselves rather than using variables to override.

Nifty.  Except ... during movies/music, wouldn't that be a
*little* bit annoying? :)
