Just answer the questions.  It doesn't insist on "managing" your
XF86Config-4 file now, it just insists on asking you questions because I
need to (greatly) improve the PRIORITY_CEILING logic which I failed to
implement correctly.

Please see <URL: http://people.debian.org/~branden/xsf/FAQ > (near the
