Yes and i still believe it is wise to do so.

I think we can safely do it before sarge release, Branden do you have any

That is very simple to do our side even if i didn't prepare xfree86 for it.
All the commits and comments were done on a xorg sandbox, but there is no reason
not to do it.

This just need to be coordinate. It would be enough that we upload xfree86 and in the
same day or max the day after you upload your version of xprt, but i don't see anything
impossible in it.

inevitably taken from the person in front of you.
