Xorg 7.3 (and AIGLX) support, afaik, is supposed to be in the next
release, which will be sometime this month if they keep up their
release schedule.  Kernel 2.6.23 support, however, I haven't found very
much detail about at all.  

There's a patch for the -mm fglrx (8.40.4, not 8.41) in [unstable]'s CVS
that allowed it to build - that might work for the 2.6.23 kernel as
well, although it was a user-made patch, so it may not be perfect.  I
suggest giving that a shot, and if it doesn't work, push the kernel to
testing anyway.
