This has been proposed, but currently there seems to be no clear consenus.
We have fixed a lot of stuff in xsrc, and failed to feed back lots of the
changes to xfree - this especially is important for non-i386 architectures.
Manually merging those changes into x.org sources is a big job, while the
benefit of switching to x.org is not clear. Yes, I know right now the x.org
server supports some newer PC graphics cards better - but is it just a matter
of time for xfree to pick up those improvements? We don't realy know.
I personally would prefer if we'd sync our stuff with xfree completely first,
and then reconsider the switch.
