No, the testing we need is for xorg-edgers on natty; we'll be working
issues found in that combo, but not ones from xorg-edgers on maverick.
(Having the right kernel is pretty important, esp. with 3D apps.)

Natty is quite unstable at the moment but if you want to test it now,
you could create a USB LiveCD environment with the latest daily ISO, and
then install xorg-edgers on top of that.
