  Thanks for the tip.  As it turns out I already knew about this. It's
just that AMD/ATI just released a brand new driver package this month,
and I wanted that:

    dawitbro@P4WRK:~$ apt-cache policy fglrx-kernel-src
      Installed: 8.33.6-1
      Candidate: 8.33.6-1
      Version table:
     *** 8.33.6-1 0
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
         8.28.8-4 0
            400 http://debian.uchicago.edu etch/non-free Packages

This is also what I'm waiting for.  I see that sid currently has 8.31
which doesn't do my Radeon X1600 Pro any good.  8.33 is the first
version to fix the xvideo problem so I can use tvtime with x.org.

   You may have misunderstood.  When I said I wanted 8.33, I meant
that I installed ATI's proprietary driver by compiling it myself,
instead of using the Debian 8.28 package.  I didn't mean that I'm
still _waiting_!
   I found it terribly easy to install, though I've done it before so
maybe I'm just getting used to it.  I can tell you the steps I used,
if you're interested....
