Hi guys,

I've just read that xserver-xorg-video-ati has just reached version 6.9.0. 
The changelog is huge, and having EXA support really makes me want to try 
this. Full changelog is available here:

Intrepid is certain to get this (or better), but is there any chance such 
an update makes it to hardy-proposed? Maybe hardy-backports? The work Alex 
Deucher et al. are doing after getting the specs is absolutely top notch, 
and it shows. It's also possible that all the work that has gone into 
atombios and the "magic numbers" has fixed quite a few rare bugs.

  we exchange these apples then you and I will
  still each have one apple. But if you have an
  idea and I have an idea and we exchange these
  ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."
