Dont worry, I know the whole issue with VGA at the moment, been round long enough to know.
Thing is though, theres alot of USB to VGA adapters on places like ebay. Yeah £25 is more than the R-PI itself, but would one of these actually work with the R-Pi, rather than users having to get HDMI monitors.

Personally, I have a DVI-I / DVI-D enabled montor so I will be having a HDMI to DVI cable anyway.
