Makes sense to me - no matter when we do it, at some point there will be
a boundary across which patches have to be reformatted to apply cleanly,
so doing it as the current stable series is not getting as many backports
as when it first came out, but we're getting ready to release a new stable
branch seems like a good time.

I would like to just have one big boundary to cross though, so hope we
can work out the few style points that have been raised quickly, before
pulling this in, but anything to make the XKB code look less alien and
utterly unlike anything else in the server (or pretty much anything else)
seems like a win.
