Adam et al,
What was the motivation behind the removal of xf86Version.h and the
associated API? Was it simply a cleanup effort of extraneous code?

It's removal has broken my ability to build the linuxwacom project's Xorg
driver in all of the most recent versions of the xorg-server. If it is not
ultimately necessary to remove, perhaps it would be better to slate it for
deletion in the near future so that developers have a little time to remove
any associated references?

I've submitted a bug report to the linuxwacom team, but the project doesn't
seem very active and my tablet is my only source for pointer input, so the
loss of the API has left me high and dry on xorg-server 1.5 and newer.
