Er, actually, last I heard, the author was still looking into
relicensing it in a manner consistent with XFree86's requirements.
(They don't accept GPLed code.)

I just checked branches/4.3.0/sid in my SVN repo and there is no mention
of the driver, so I do not think it is there.

It may be a good idea to go ahead and package it, though I am not sure
you have picked the best name for it.

If you abandon the package, change it to an RFP.  If you package it,
close the bug in the changelog of the initial release.
