Dell 2711 calibration question

I bought the Dell 2711 a couple of months ago and all is well.

The monitor has a fairly wide gamut and can be operated in different modes - ie sRGB or aRGB. It is factory calibrated to aRGB and I havent recalibrated (even though I very much suspect the screen is too bright.)

My problem is this. I have a Spyderexpress. If I ask it to recalibrate my screen how will it know which mode to recalibrate it? Obviously I want aRGB to be aRGB rather than the best calibration of the entire gamut my monitor is capable of. Isnt the Spyderexpress going to simply calibrate the entire monitor rather than the individual settings so that when I switch to aRGB it might be less accurate than before?
