About Xfree 4.
We could/should make an debian package containing only the server binary and
modules stuff, installeable into /usr/X11R6.4 so as not to break the normal X,
and configured to use /etc/X11/XF86Config.4. Maybe also include an example
Flag it beta/untested or whatever, and include it as ppc onbly binary in
potato before it is released.

Any comments ?
