FCE / Macbook Pro 17in 2nd monitor setup

Is it possible to connect a second monitor to the DVI port on a new MacBook Pro 17in and use it not as a second monitor for the Mac, but like an analog monitor.

Is this possible?

If you want the functional equivalent of an analog video monitor off your DVI port you might want to check out the Matrox MXO as well.
