The description for
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/622179 raised by me
complains the error messages produced by debian/local/xserver-wrapper.c
are poor and could be improved.  (It's being polite.)

Bryce Harrington made it Triaged/Low back in 2010/11.  And there it sat.
In 2014, Christopher M. Penalver (penalvch) made it Won't-Fix/Wishlist
whilst asking if it could be recreated on xorg's trunk.  Clearly, it
can't be as it is a Debian-specific feature.

Since then, there's been a bit of to and fro, with Christopher bringing
in Julien Cristau as he's contributed to Debian's xserver-wrapper.c now
and again.  AIUI the current status is Christopher thinks
Won't-Fix/Wishlist should remain because I'm "requesting a fundamental
change" whereas Julien thinks it should be fixed and then the fix sent
upstream to Debian.

I thought what used to happen with this kind of bug is another could be
raised on Debian and Ubuntu's bug track it.  Then a fix would appear on
one or the other and both would end up closed.  Is Won't-Fix/Wishlist
subjectively correct for this bug?

Cheers, Ralph.
