Thanks. I just wonder if it'll pull in the needed versions? X from git
will require newer versions of various packages than xserver-1.5 or
whatever version is available in Debian.

I guess an alternative is to use Peter Hutterer's X super module, but
I'm not too familiar with that either.

I should also say that anyone interested in testing is encouraged to
join our #alpha IRC channel on irc.freenode.net.
