Patrick, there are a few misconceptions here.
When the openchrome fork happened, it was deemed upstream that the only
acceptable solution was that openchrome maintained the upstream via

not deemed an acceptable solution.
Also, -unichrome is not dead. I am just overloaded with work on
SUSE/Novell X Driver Developer.
