Actually, I just came up with another hack using PyGame as well like
screen = pygame.display.set_mode((0,0))
WIDTH, HEIGHT = screen.get_size()
If you pass zero values into the resolution, it will pop to the
current screen resolution. And since I'm making a PyGame app, this
actually works out ok. However, querying the current_w & current_h
attrs from the Info object is a lot cleaner (I was unaware of that,
But I'd sure like to know if there is built-in way.
