Comment (by dj at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Sorry Andy, but I must disagree, citing points 1,2, and 3 above from
 Randy.  4 I'm not so sure about, but it's not relavent to this bug.  I've
 not really cared about this one in the past, then a new release appeared.
 As I see it right now, there is no reason to remove XFree86.  It's been
 updated to the latest version already, the instructions rarely change, and
 the maintainers are still present and active.  If a new version comes out,
 or a major security flaw is discovered, *and* if no editors want to update
 it, then It can be removed at that time.  But for now, I feel that it is a
 working package that shouldn't have much of a maintenance burden.
