I would like to have libdrm/mesa7.10/xorg1.9 in extra first. Mesa 7.9
has its problems, so I don't think going to 7.10 is a bad idea. So far
the bug count for xorg-server is quite low at this moment, all problems
we're facing now comes from drivers, so I don't see reason to jump to a
release candidate of 1.10 now.
