Remove randr 1.1 support in xfce4-display-settings?

As you may know, Lionel as been doing an awesome job on
xfce4-display-settings, bringing randr 1.2 goodness. The code already
has a high number of ifdefs all over the place to handle the randr 1.1
I'm currently working on a graphical view of the monitors' layout which
will allow to view/modify the layout in an easy way. Handling randr 1.1
would add even more ifdef mess.
I propose that we drop the randr 1.1 only support from our display
stack. It brings very little benefits as (afaik) it is only useful for
proprietary drivers which also offer their own graphical tool to handle
displays AND it is a real maintenance burden and slows development
(testing all scenarios is really annoying).
Is anyone opposed to this?
Thanks in advance,
