Package: xserver-xorg-video-all
Severity: wishlist

It seems to me that the common cases in driver support where a change of driver
is needed are changes between different relatively new systems and a change
from an old system to a new system.

I would like to have a package with a name such as xserver-xorg-video-recent
which would drag in all the drivers for PCIe cards and other video hardware
that has been released relatively recently.

There is no realistic possibility that I will be installing a Tseng, S3,
or Trident video card in one of my 64bit systems.  But it is quite likely that
I will use a different modern video card at some time.

I am not suggesting removing xserver-xorg-video-all, merely adding a new
package for the convenience of users with modern hardware.

I saw no objection to that reasoning. Closing this bug accordingly.
