Are 3.3 libs incompatible to 3.2 libs? If this "xf86-xemacs" problem is
due to the 3.2->3.3 change, we'll have to test the whole distribution
against such problems with XFree 3.3 before we include this into Debian

(Someone else stated that since X 3.3 is well tested, we only have to test
the "Debian packaging". This is definitely wrong then!)

Just my $0.02,
