I point out, perhaps unnecessarily, that "most" in terms of volume would be 
the $179 17" monitors that come "free" with sub-1K PCs and they decidedly 
_don't_ handle sync on green (or anything that they don't absolutely have to.)

Interestingly, when I opened up a KFC monitor (used at a local school) to 
fix it I saw the pads on the video board where the LM1881 would go! So 
clearly in some more expensive version it did handle sync on green :-) 
There were also pads for the BNC connector inputs.

Although, finding a source of the BNC to VGA adapter would be handy.
