XFree86 in xsrc is possibly temporary, but it will be with us for a

In essence, xsrc is part of the base system.  If you'd like to make
a proposal to move specific items into src from xsrc (or elsewhere),
please do so, but be sure that you have a good set of reasons.


                  Use NetBSD!
