this sounds exactly like the case with the permille/ezh/EZH patches for
xlib/xproto I submitted and got Reviewed-by recently but which have not
been merged yet (hint hint ;). With those additions my plan was to wait
as long as latest Fedora release would have patched xlib/xproto
available, and only then submit the corresponding updates to
xkeyboard-config to make sure currently working setups won't be affected
