Status of X packages

As far as I know, the XFree86 packages in slink/potato (X* 
are still broken.  They have been broken for a while, and it was 
recommended to us that we -don't- upgrade unless we are willing to put 
up with the brokenness.  There was a flurry of releases that stopped 
with *-6, but no announcement that the brokenness was fixed.

The most recent movement with the X packages has been the filing of a 
release-critical bug against dpkg, because builds of *-7 won't work 
until the bug is fixed.

Since people are starting to upgrade to *-6, and it's still broken, 
perhaps we should downgrade the X packages in slink to the last working 
version (which I think is *, and move the current packages 
to experimental.
