Feature suggestion: Automatic handling of monitor hotplugging

what I really like about GNOME is that it handles hotplugging of
external monitors automatically at runtime. This is especially important
when using a docking station. When I come home and plug my laptop into
the docking station I want my desktop environment to disable the
laptop's display and configure the external monitor with my preferred
resolution instead. And vice versa.
GNOME handles this through the RandR-plugin of gnome-settings-daemon
 quite nicely. I would really like to see that in XFCE too. From
what I understand the best place for this would be xfsettingsd because
it runs in the background and could react to RRScreenChangeNotify events
of the X server.
I'm conviced this would be a valuable addition to XFCE for a lot of users.
