Yes, I know you've been keeping the two in sync -- thanks.  Hopefully  
you won't have to do that anymore -- switching to 1.4 is my #1  
priority for this upcoming week.

After a bit of fiddling, I got xorg-server-1.4-apple to build and  
run.   I've only tested it a little bit -- I ran quartz-wm, xterm and  
xev -- and the events code seemed to be working correctly, except that  
caps-lock needs to be hit 4 times to enable and then disable.  (I know  
how to fix that one.)  I seem to recall you said that 'Shift' is broken?
