Yeah... and the license file as well...

X11R7.3 includes xserver-1.4 and many other changes (which are gonna
go into X11.app 2.2 ... check the ChangeLog I have in the wiki).
xserver-1.3 was intermediate between x11r7.2 and 7.3

Ok, I just noticed that the package was called X11User.pkg still in
the Leopard install, so I wanted to keep that the same... I'll change

I'll take a look at that again and see how easy it is to include.

Yeah, I figure we'll do 2.1.1 sometime in a couple weeks. I just want
to get something out there with all these fixes we do have rather than
keep delaying for "one more fix" forever.
