| Problem is, it isn't just the Xserver... All of the pieces are
| intertwined and so in many cases to update Xserver you also need to
| update some/several libraries as well as all of your drivers. Xorg is
| about 60 or 70 ports now.
That can be handled, it seems to me.
My current port upgrade problem is that I cannot csup the tree and get
the old X to rebuild dependent components.
| FWIW, I have Xserver 1.6 and xrandr bits that are rc already... as well
| as a new intel driver that I don't want to update without xserver 1.6.
I would be willing to test 1.6 on my many different machines, provided
there is a clear and inexpensive (< 2 hours) path to a rollback.
