You mean a complete X release as beta?
As for your patch I think it's a very bad idea. The Debian packages must
take care of other Debian packages, not of any software you might have
installed on your own.
Once a new version of xlib (with libXaw.so.6.1) comes out it may break
Xaw95 (and I suppose it'll also break Xaw3d). This has to be solved by
package dependencies in the control file, but not by a hack like this.
