Yes, the _pages_ must be rewritten and no there is no way that Xorg-7.0
is anywhere near ready for a quick release.  Ag's suggestion of 10
pages, seems most sensible here, even though it doesn't follow the X
developers' logical package types.  I've disliked that layout since the
first change made after the initial commit, and my dislike has only
grown.  I recently tried to organize and clarify it a bit better, but
it's just not working for me.
