I don't know if there is an easier way, but I just copy the modelines
I like from the log and paste them in the xorg.conf file. Put them in
the "Monitor" section.

To address your second paragraph: in my case at least, including
explicit modelines suppresses the automatic modes. I only get the ones
explicitly listed. This has worked in both XFree86 and Xorg.
