We're in the process of getting rid of the X server's need for discover
right now. I'm almost positive that this will be ready for lenny, so
whatever decisions you want to be made wrt discover won't have to take the
X server in to account.

Similarly, xdebconfigurator should almost certaintly go away for lenny. The
X server should already do autoconfig without an xorg.conf in most
situations better than anything xdebconfigurator is likely to come up with,
and by the time lenny ships we'll be kicking the old statically generated
xorg.confs like nobody's business.
