It's a special case we made last year when we stopped shipping the
xf86-video-via driver it replaced, since no one was maintaining the
via driver anymore, and at least then the openchrome driver was still
maintained.   (Though with no driver update in a year either, maybe it's
just time to declare VIA hardware to be stuck with the VESA driver
