Sorry, 'now ish', not 'no wish'. In other words, now, or soon.

7.4 froze a hell of a long time ago, and it will be released soon. I
don't know exactly when.

Yes, just as we released server 1.2 with 7.2, and server 1.4 with 7.3.
We're going to have a stable server release in the interim to complete
the graphical stack (mainly DRI2, really), and then another release
after that to complete the input stack (MPX, Xi2, XKB2, etc).

If current drivers do not work against 1.4.2, please file bugs.
