OK. I've pushed in the Xorg-7.2 patchlevel updates. I added the two
upstream fixes since libX11-1.1.2. There were two exceptions to the
rule. xsetpointer-1.0.1 requires inputproto-1.4, which is scheduled
for Xorg-7.3, so it was left out. Also, libXfont-1.2.9 was left out
because the developer quickly realized it should be 1.3.0 and made a
new release. We'll get this in Xorg-7.3.


I'll note these in #2225 so they don't go away.

Next is XCB. I'll be adding the distro patch which supplies an
environment variable to workaround locking errors in applications.
Holler if you don't want this approach. Alexander describes it here:
