Because portage treats the default virtual differently than I was
previously led to believe, everybody who's ported a package to modular X
so far will need to make a small change.

It's really easy, but it might take a bit of time to go through your
packages.

Here's the change:
	"virtual/x11" -> "<=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.99"

This is because portage doesn't do a sanity check for the PROVIDES flag
on the default provider of a virtual.

Thanks for your time,
Donnie
