I reassigned to the first realy package I noticed it mentioned, feel free to
pass it on wherever it's supposed to go.

Last I tried (it was 3.3.4 or .5, can't remember), you couldn't even run X
with SiS 6326 properly, without turning off all accelerations. And even
then, it couldn't render the fixed font in an xterm, it displayed it black
on black. >:(

If you wish, send me a patch for release-notes.sgml. Otherwise, I'll be
tempted to either ignore it or endlessly rant/bitch about it ;)
