And we will release woody with 4.1.0 while 4.3.0 is released, isn't it, given
XFree86 6 month release cycle, this makes us have 1 year old X packages or a
outdated woody before it is even released.

That said, this is no critic against Branden, i understand its reasons, and
much prefer a working 4.1.0 than a buggy 4.2.0 in woody. But then i am using
my own built X server anyway, so ...
