Yeah... I second that...

Also, is there any objection to my pushing xquartz-specific patches  
directly into server-1.6-branch rather than putting them into the  
cherry-pick-nomination wiki list?  I've gotten the impression before  
that "if it's #ifdef XQUARTS or in hw/xquartz, we don't care" ... so  
I'm assuming that's ok... and if I need anything more than that, I'll  
nominate it in the wiki list...
