There's this whole "testing" thing :-)

xorg seems to have an amazing ability to introduce regressions, especially
in edge cases/older hardware.  Each of the last N updates has been preceded
by a lot of staging/testing, and even so, created a lot of work to clean
everything up.

So, in theory, it's easy, but in practice, it requires someone(s) with a lot
of time and dedication.

We certainly need one or more such people right now!
