Hi Andrew

So far as I am aware there is still radio silence from active GNOME
packaging team members regarding this issue. No comment yet on the
patch I adapted, positive or negative; this bug (#927667) remains
at an RC severity.

I've not yet read all the thread that Samuel linked to[1] but it looks
like it leans in favour of preserving the current default (xorg).

I'm copying -release team to see if they have any (new) opinions on
the matter. Otherwise I guess it's up to someone to prepare an NMU
upload, which I will *try* to look at in the next few days, but can't
make any guarantees.

Further testers of the patch on this bug would be most welcome.
