As a non-ATI user I would be quiet unhappy to see a version bump of such a
large package just to let ATI users use ATIs own drivers.
Wouldn't it be better to block xorg 6.8 from the ati-driver side? If a 6.7
release remains in stable they'd continue to work properly, and the rest of
us would get the shiney new version.
