Up until now and even including the current bump to xserver_xorg-server 
1.20.0 I am still willing to support even the oldest drivers if I can 
find the necessary patches somewhere so from my POV it is ok to keep 
them. If Thomas or Peter think otherwise I can remove them since I have 
no personal interest in them ;)

Right now I am preparing a smaller patch series bumping some x11r7 
packages, splitting four xdriver_xf86* packages from this series along 
with three recent bumps by upstream. After that in the coming days I will 
send v4 of the xserver bump series.

Regards, Bernd
