AFAICT, with Leopard, binaries are installed from  
com.apple.pkg.X11User (main install) and headers are from  
com.apple.pkg.X11SDKLeo (XCode 3).

I *really* don't want to maintain two separate packages, and I don't  
feel right calling our package com.apple.*.  It's a community  
supported overlay of Apple's official releases, so I'm just going to  
use org.x.X11 and combine both X11User and X11SDK updates.  Does  
anyone have any objections to that or know of any negative  
consequences to doing that?
