I cannot speak for Kris as to whether he will add xorg 1.5 since I 
think he mentioned there was a code freeze since last week.
It would be cool to test it but maybe you have to beg Kris pretty 
please with sugar on top. ;-)

I just saw a news bulletin on phoronix that says xorg 7.4 is due for 
release on Sept. 10th. Perhaps it comes too late in this case
but maybe there will be some kind of system update or installed that 
will come in the future that would allow an easy update to 1.5.
