In "day-to-day" there is no noticeable difference. I'd deplore one
really annoying bug: http://freedesktop.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=474
which prevents me to use MPlayer with XVideo extension when a lot of apps
are running; falling back to -vo x11 is not good on slow hardware.
So for the moment, if XFree86 4.X works for you, you may want to wait
for next Xorg release.
