Sounds reasonable.  Branden can decide if he'd prefer to leave the current
xprt to contain the XFree86 binary, or transform it into the virtual
package, and I'll fit in accordingly. Seems to me though that xprint would
be the appropriate name for the virtual package, in which case xprt could
stay as xprt, just changing the Provides: field etc.
