Hi Arnaud and Alan,

I would be more than happy if the transset-df fork was merge into  
xorg. That was my hope from the beginning and people have approach me  
about it before but it just never seemed to happen completely. I don't  
feel I have the time or even knowledge to help out much but do feel  
fully welcome to take the code and merge. I would however appreciate  
if you kept me somewhat updated on that progress so I can later update  
the webpage and point to the features in xorg instead.
