I think I've got this sorted in svn now:
* all video drivers currently in experimental changed to Provides: xserver-xorg-video-1.0
instead of Provides: xserver-xorg-video
* xserver-xorg binary package changed to Depends: xserver-xorg-video-all | xserver-xorg-video-1.0
* xserver-xorg-core Depends: xserver-xorg-video-all | xserver-xorg-video is removed.
It now Conflicts: xserver-xorg-video.
* For good measure Depends: xserver-xorg-input-all | xserver-xorg-input is also removed from xserver-xorg-core.
The removal of these Dependses is for the purpose of avoiding circular dependencies with the drivers.
There are a handful of video drivers in unstable only, not experimental, which I did not touch.
