I feel very lost with this mail.  Xorg 7.0 is a goal for the etch release;
in fact, getting it into testing is a goal for the coming week.  Why do you
want to revert changes for supporting Xorg 7.0 in testing?  For that matter,
why is libxklavier not able to support both Xorg 7.0 and older X servers
(such as Xorg 6.9 and XFree86 4.3)?
