I've updated the xorg-edgers Xserver; it now includes this commit.
Since it's moderately annoying to do an ABI transition in Natty's main
repository, we'll be trying to take only the final 1.10 ABI when pushing
into Natty.

Normally it would be RC1, but this ABI break was waved through for RC1.
The release schedule claims 2011-02-1 as the deadline for non-critical

I would expect progressively more push-back on further ABI changes
proposed from here on in, but there's not a hard deadline that
definitely won't be delayed.
