You also list OSX support on the 7.4 list, but I don't think we're  
going to have a working Xquartz based on the 1.5 server any time in  
the next 2 months.  There are some odd issues that I haven't had time  
to focus on (intending first to push out a release based on the 1.4  
branch which is working very well now).  How do you want to handle that?

If you want to actually claim OSX support with X11R7.4, then we  
actually need the following:
roll a new release from xtrans head
mention that the Xquartz server for X11R7.4 is actually xorg- 

Additionally, we should probably roll a new release of xinit to fix a  
brown-bag issue with xserverrc that I committed a fix to (yes, I  
committed the breakage as well).
