Unfortunately, I share that impression.  Several
initiatives also seem nice for a certain class of desktop environment
users, but tend to occasionally also add restrictions for expert X11
users: a lot of code goes into trying to allow unprivileged users more
control and to simplify/automate configuration, most of which seems
unnecessary for old X11 users, so we see the new bugs and regressions
more than we enjoy the new features...

I'm glad that DRM/DRI with ATI is now possible with the base-system
alone, though :)
