Situation of 1.3 is still more-or-less unchaged: only really serious
bugfixes can go in 1.3.1, after (we have been promised) two weeks

XFree 3.3 has important security fixes, and there seems to be no other
way to close the security holes currently in debian 1.3.0 than to include
Xfree 3.3, so there is a chance that will be included. I'm much less
