[This is a bit off-topic, to say nothing of 3 months late, but I thought
I'd offer the correction nonetheless.]

That's not true.  We do intend to package the monolithic X.Org X11 release,
much as Ubuntu has done.

That work has started at
<URL: http://necrotic.deadbeast.net/svn/xorg-x11/trunk/ >.

While there's still a fair amount of work to be done, that repository makes
things look even leaner than they are because a lot of the stuff that just
copies over from the xfree86 packaging without modification hasn't been
copied yet.  Right now I'm working through some fairly low-level decisions
with the X Strike Force guys, such as selection of a new patch management
