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.
