Okay...so I'm seeing added dri2proto and updated inputproto, renderproto,
randrproto, xcb-proto, lib-xcb, libX11, libxrandr, xtrans, libxrender,
libdrm, Mesa, xorg-server, and a slew of driver updates.  Also, there is
no *upgrade* path with the removal of xcb-xlib.

That about cover it?  I miss anything?
