Thank you for a great job, Jan. 
I can confirm the xorg-server 1.8 works great for me! :) 
I'm running on [testing], i686, kernel, xf86-video-intel, 
touchpad(synaptics), keyboard, usb keyb/mouse hotpluging works as well, 
sound(intel hda) & guvc video webcam .... just upgraded and voila, works like 
a charm! :) 
Happy Easter to all of you! 

...well, here's an update after a deeper tryout :) 
*touchpad(synaptics) - issues with tapping which does not work /buttons do/

*a note for testers, one can disable !hal from rc.conf but make sure to 
include dbus instead(hal used to start it up) otherwise policykit fails

*I have troubles with resuming from suspend/black screen/ but have to make 
sure if it is not a problem of kernel.

*as I'm using kde, here's a problem: battery monitor is disabled and i'm not 
sure if cpu freq scaling under kde works(probably problem of kde?, acpi 
command shows correct info), also there is a dependency on hal- pacman -Rcsn 
hal would remove a great bunch of packages(including kde), how do I figure, 
whats the dep.? 

Thanks once again, Mark
