In hamm, or you could continue to try and upgrade to the latest packages,
there's an attempt at -5 being built as we speak.  This makes 4 versions of
X in 4 days.

Slink is our current development version.  If you can't handle that things
break---even important things---in development cycles, you probably should
stick with hamm and only grab the few things you need from slink.

X -5 should propagate the mirrors in a couple days.

Show me the code or get out of my way.
