I can only add to the discussion that XFree 4.1 also runs fine with the
XFree 4.2.0 server.  The server is much simpler to compile (or even NOT
compile for that matter if you'd prefer not to do so) than the whole of
XFree86, and is all that is required to add support for the latest
hardware.

I recall seeing someplace a document which describes how to add XFree86
4.1's server to Debian's older 4.0.x X packages.  A quick google doesn't
turn it up, but perhaps if someone has a link to the document it could be
generalized and included someplace that users can find it?  It covered
installing the XFree server from source or binary and procedure to remove
it when Branden finished XFree 4.1 packages.  (I hope the document was not
taken down when 4.1 packages were ready, everything in it still applies
today to 4.2..)
