I suppose I should have highlighted this portion of the entry - Server 1.5.3 
also really wants to configure its input devices via hald. - which goes 
directly to the issue the OP wrote about - namely that he was caught by 
surprise by the fact that hald is now used for configuring devices and his old 
xorg.conf file would no longer work as expected.

That really was my point.
