How is setting the DPI different than setting the multiplicative factor that 
was applied to the DPI before? Are you expecting a lot of applications having 
called that function above? Assume there's less than 0.1% of them doing that.

Anyway, what's the correct way to specify now that one of my external monitors 
is highdpi but the other isn't?
