Mass bugfiling seems appropriate and reasonable, but if you've already found
11 build failures in [0-9a-d], I think a severity: serious bug should be
filed against the new xorg in unstable to hold it out of lenny until the
full impact is known and the release team can make an informed decision
about whether this is acceptable for the release.
