Guess I missed a few the last time around.  In particular, some drivers
which are in the archive now were not shipped with 7.3, so I've added
those to the wiki too.  If there's anything still missing, please let
me know.  In particular, xf86driproto is missing all 2.0.x announce
mails, and I can't see one for openchrome either, yet it's in the

I've resync module-list with the archive by means of ls (i.e. it
reflects exactly what's there right now): while doing this, I readded
xkill and xrefresh to the archive, as I assumed they were needed, and
removed the bits deleted from module-list.txt but still in
src/everything -- in particular, imake and friends.  I also kicked
xsetpointer out in favour of xinput, since xsetpointer won't even do
_anything_ at all useful on modern servers -- even xsetpointer -l will
just show you the core devices.

I've also resynced the list of xf86-input-* with build.sh, as made a
while ago.  If this is objectionable, let me know and I'll restore it
