I think that would be a very good idea.  However, for woody, I think
we should probably move to the libdetect (HardDrake) code base (now in
unstable as of yesterday).

Incidentally, you may actually be able to get a more complete card
database for 2.2r1 by parsing the board info files in libdetect and
massaging them into anXious' format.  IIRC the X server for each card
is listed there.
