We'll get it patched (firefox still uses it, and needs it since a bug
prevents firefox using ordinary cups printers, complaining "paper size
not supported". Also I understand cairo is still not yet quite ready to
fully replace xprint).  I mainly follow Debian development myself, which
has only reached xserver 1.3, so I haven't got to the latest version in
master yet.
