On Sid I changed my sources.list to this:
deb http://people.debian.org/~dnusinow/xorg ./
deb ftp://ftp.uni-mainz.de/pub/Linux/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
Then I did the following:
/Fri Jul 08-05:47:36HDB1# apt-get update
/Fri Jul 08-05:57:38HDB1# apt-get remove x-window-system-core
/Fri Jul 08-05:58:01HDB1# apt-get remove xterm
/Fri Jul 08-05:58:22HDB1# apt-get remove xprt-xprintorg

Reasoning that those were the packages I installed when I installed Sid.
That all worked. Changed XF86Config-4 appropriately and restarted gdm.
No Xorg users apparently. Good. You wonder who could use it for what.
I put just the one entry in sources.list and did a dist-upgrade and
installed everything that I had.
There was another fix needed to avoid mozilla from
diappearing and wmxmms to show up, from here:
which solved it.
Then of course the "eyecandy", I found xcompmgr here:
http://freedesktop.org/xapps/release/ it apparently is
not with the .debs.
And to compile that had to install xcomposite, xfixes,
xdamage and xrender and link pkgconfig for X to where
he wants it apparently.
There is a transset on a key here:
But I never got that to run because e16keyedit dies.
Which brings us to what all that gets you.
With a 2.1GHz CPU running xcompmgr -c on only 1 X puts
the CPU at a constant 56% and X is cute to look at but
in no whay ready to useful work: way to slow on a
Nvidia TNT with acceleration set.
Anybody actually use this in a production mode for
useful work, like answering emails?
Aparently not because there are no Xorg users here.
