As there has been nothing really posted to the debian-boot list yet I
personally don't have sufficient information to determine whether the
X.Org implementation is advanced enough to warrant a full switch.
From what I've seen the current stage is still "getting things to work".
I would very much appreciate if KiBi and jcristau would submit their
proposals to this list in fair detail for review and discussion before
pushing for changes that affect the installer in the archive.
