the driver doesn't come from X.Org, so this (and the links above) is
probably unnecessary.  Also probably s/X.Org/Xorg/ in the short

I think it's better if the driver is maintained by people who use it, so
I'm happy to see the pkg-fso team take care of it :)
Feel free to ask on debian-x@ or #debian-x for any questions you have
though, or if you want us to look over the package before upload.
