Ani, please don't let the words of a professional blockhead like Sven
LUTHER influence your perception of my thoughts on the subject.

I've talked with Dan Jacobowitz about this issue, and we've come to the
grudging truce that we're simply going to have to wait for your patches to
get into XFree86 proper for them to appear in Debian.

At least in my packages; if someone wants to do some (unofficial) special
xserver-xfree86-ajoshi package, I guess they can.

At any rate, given what David Dawes has been saying about 4_0_2-branch
lately, I think it is very unlikely that your patches would be allowed in
for 4.0.3 anyway.

Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing your enhancements.

And to you other guys, I think you need to relax and refresh your memories
on the distinction between "upstream source" and "Debian packages".
