I'm also CCing to debian-x.

Yes, may be.

I don't know about that. Does this web page help you?

The files are in dpsclient but not in your package. (except under

I don't know, sorry.

I think this is good idea.
I think XFree86-4.0 is not stable as 3.3.6. So the transition does
not go smoothly. ( At least, I want to use 3.3.6 for the present. )
I will maintain dpclient package until almost users use XFree86-4.
B.R.> 6) Are there any files in my libdps* packages with the same names as files

Yes. Please put "Replace: dpsclient" in your control file.
