Like I said, I think it violates POLA as well to include something that
is not part of modular Xorg. We had a similiar situation with
xorg-clients, as that always shipped way to ancient version of xterm.
I don't mind that much whether or not it is included, but it feels not
right to call it a modular Xorg component.
