videoram is still settable using the command line option only. That or
someone forgot to update the texts. The DPI are still present in the 
program too (including the measure your monitor dialog).

Refresh rate is lacking - which is a problem because many countries have
72Hz health and safety minimums for workers using crt monitors and the
tools dont seem to generate 72Hz or better in all cases they can automatically.
