I don't know how xorg development is done but for example in linux kernel area
if someone is introducing changes that affect other kernel areas then that
person is responsible for fixing all such cases.
Isn't the same schema used in xorg?
If yes then dmx should be build by thinderbox by default so the one doing
changes will actually know if something broke.
