This is a stated feature goal of Hoary (the next release), and X.Org
packages will appear in the Hoary tree while it's in development -- look
for some awesome (and possibly interesting!) X packages in the next
couple of months. :)

It's worthnoting that our XFree86 packages are hardly 4.3; last I
checked, we were just squeezing over 300,000 lines of patches to the
original 4.3.0.  This includes the upcoming nVidia driver backport, and
substantial additions of support to the ATI driver, including r4xx
