comment SL DVI-D + HDMI = DL DVI-D, Possible?
Interesting answer, but you write "you can not combine two single-link DVI connections into a dual-link DVI connection". Why not? Because technically, dual-link DVI are two TDMS channels with the same clock. And, depending on the motherboard, the vendor may opt to use one PLL to drive two digital outputs (e.g. DVI and HDMI), hence the clock should be the same. What would be the reason one couldn't use the two to drive one monitor (especially thinking that under Linux, one could configure the GPU to do what you want).

comment BASH: run commands asynchronously at a delay
You don't need to store the PID. Just use wait to wait for all background jobs to finish or in the rare case you need to wait for just one specific background job, use wait %1 (1 being the job id in this example). For more advanced scripts, use coproc MYCMD { cmd1; }, then wait $MYCMD_PID.
