Not exactly what you are looking for, but I have put the xrandr call in
a script and assigned a hotkey via xfce4-keyboard-settings.

To be exact, I assigned different hotkeys for different xrandr settings.
That way I can switch different settings for different situations.

Very quick and you don't have to rely on any autodetections.

HTH a bit.
