hmmm, good point to you... I don't know if it's a really good solution to keep 
a so important, but unsupported, software in the stable release for the 
distribution which has the reputation of stability. If some bugs or security 
holes are found during the 10 years of the life of Sarge, who will correct 
them ? Of course, everybody have heard that Branden waits for Sarge release 
to package xorg, but I think he has all the time he need to package and 
stabilize xorg before Sarge being released. To be sure, you just have to look 
at http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/ and see that the number of bug 
concerning Sarge has nearly never get down below 100 for 4 months ...
I know fixing bug need lots of work and time, but if Sarge is not released in 
the next 1 or 2 years, Xorg could enter in Sarge, maybe ?
