Uh, I was kind of planning on recruiting some folks to rip that thing open
and Debianizing it for the potato release.  I already have the latest
Red Hat diffs in my X work directory on various machines, and was going to
go through them for potato X.

I'm just still working on kicking slink X out of the nest.

Would you mind doing this work under the umbrella of the X Strike Force?
I'd like to ship the X configurator in xserver-common once it's ready for
prime time.
