If you want to test, maybe installing Debian 4.0 and upgrading to sid is a 
better alternative now (you could use another partition for that). Testing 
xrandr-1.2 needs xorg-server-1.3.0, Debian has that.

The intel driver is available in U7.04, although the version is 1.9.94. 
2.0.0 is available here: http://users.tkk.fi/~tjaalton/dpkg
(and hopefully in feisty-updates soon).
