One thing Eric Anholt did for Xorg-7.3 was tag the util/modular repo.
So, at least you had a module list that was tagged for the Xorg
release, which is better than trawling through the src archive to
determine released versions.

It'd be nice if we could get the same for 7.4, just for future reference. Ajax?
