Go ahead and take it up to 0.20.0 if you don't mind. I'll be updating
the book with Xorg-7.6(-1) in the next few days (or within two weeks
anyway...as soon as it is made official, or at least when all modules
are updated as I didn't plan on adding the new docs packages) and pixman
would be a part of that update.
