Jesus christ, how much time do you want to spend on X? sarge *should*
ship with either xorg, or fd.o's X. sarge *should* ship with a
brand-spanking GNOME. sarge *should* have autoconfiguring X. sarge
*should* have out-of-the-box wireless, LDAP authentication, et al,

It doesn't make *any* of these RC.

important, at best. I'm not suggesting that the patch shouldn't be
applied for 4.3.0-8, which, given Branden's lack of response, I assume I
am release-managing. However, it is most certainly not RC.

Please don't go around making stupid suggestions like this: you might
give other people ideas.
