[ANNOUNCE] xinit 1.0.9

So... why does xserverrc start the server as :0 if you start it as '/ 
path/to/xserverrc :1' ?  That sounds like a bug with the xserverrc to  
me rather than startx...  I would consider it a bug (or atleast  
obscure, poorly defined behavior) that startx switched to using /usr/ 
X11/bin/X rather than ~/.xserverrc if all you did was give it command  
line options.

I could obviously put in a condition to have that old behavior, but it  
seems incorrect to behave that way.

Anyone have thoughts on that?
