Eh?  XFree86 4.x packages weren't held back at all.  I released them to
unstable as soon as they were ready.  A little before, in fact, since Sean
Perry accused me of "pulling a SuSE" at putting them in Progeny's
distribution at Debian's expense (despite the fact that my pre-release
.debs were available for the whole world to download from the X Strike
Force repository, quite unlike SuSE's pre-releases of yore).
