The website you specified does clear up a lot of the questions I had
too, especially about "Configured" mice and video cards. However, I
would like to see perhaps a xorg.conf shipped with Xorg anyway, with
all the default options, except commented out. The way I see it, the
auto-configuration is still not up to par yet, and having a
ready-built xorg.conf to slip bits in from would be handy for
quickly getting Xorg working again.

Plus now the proprietary ATI driver kicks up a stink every time I
reinstall it.
