Yes you're right, for all versions, this kind of things is not
settable from a client. So that's what you meant.
But it is settable from the menu.

Problem is (for 0.5 at least) there can be multiple drivers. So
if you want to set it from a client, what driver do you want to
set the contrast of... If we would like this to be possible, the
client should need to be able to 'learn' from the server what
drivers have been loaded, and whether they support contrast and
brightness settings. You can imagine that's a big extension to
the widget language. Also, what should be done if the drivers
are reloaded...?
