The situation was that our import of 7.2 was delayed as we tested and
retested and retested, to get the framework working for the modular
code and ensure as few regressions as possible. Because of this, 7.3
was almost ready for release by the time we were done.
It seems as though 7.3 is better for some people and worse for others.
With such a large codebase, this is probably inevitable.
In any case, as soon as 7.3 was out, I'm sure xorg lost interest in
bug reports about 7.2, and people were already asking us when the
next version was going to be in.
