So it works with some caveats -- iff the projector is the primary and 
only display and you use reverse sequential stereo.  Getting there was 
difficult, you have to disable the LCD monitor with the system display 
settings instead of the amdcccle interface that appears to do the same 
thing.  But you need to use the amdcccle interface to turn on 
quad-buffered stereo.  Once quad-buffered stereo is setup (after several 
reboots), you can turn on and off the LCD monitor, but the stereo-sync 
signal is only generated only if the LCD monitor is turned off.  The 
driver also got confused occasionally and wouldn't display a stereo 
image -- that was fixed by reenabling the LCD monitor and disabling it 
again.
