It is?  The last commit I see on FdO's gitweb is 10 days ago.  Perhaps I'm 
not looking in the right place?  I was looking at the modesetting-keithp 

I see two other branches that look relevant, the most recent of which 
is 'modesetting'.  I'll give that one a try instead.

Cool.  Thanks for the pointer.  I'll give it a try against Xorg 1.1.1 first 
(since I'd rather not replace more software than I need to).  If it doesn't 
work, would you be interested in bug reports?  And if so, what information 
(aside from the usual X log, description, etc.) would you like me to
