By upgrading all of these packages at the same time. the xserver-xorg-video
virtual package is replaced by xserver-xorg-video-1.0, in response to a
driver ABI change between 7.0 and 7.1.
It's possible that xserver-xorg-video-all isn't installable yet on alpha;
there have been some build failures in individual drivers, which may prevent
having a consistent set of all of them at present.
Anyway, I've tested 7.1 on my system too, and it doesn't look any better
(with the MGA driver) than 7.0 did. So I'm beginning to dig through the
diff for the driver between 6.9 and 7.1, and if I don't find anything, start
looking at the server as well.
