Needless to say, I have no problem with this.

I was glad to hear that X and GNOME Just Worked(tm) for you, Jim.  Let
me know if there's anything I can do to improve our X packages.

It's a shame that someone has quotefiled Ted T'so, who asserted that
Debian's X packages were so difficult that Jim Gettys couldn't figure
them out.

Too bad he got you confused with Dale Scheetz, who remembers 0.93R6
better than he remembers breakfast.
