For once, let me add noise to the rumor ;)

I wouldn't mind to wait for 2.6.34, as a lot of things are cooking in the drivers/gpu/drm area and I'm interested as far as nouveau is in concern... But let's not be too egocentric, radeon users will benefit of changes as well ;)

Ah, and upgrade of xorg-server to 1.8.0 will be welcome as well - though yes, I understand that a lot of HAL files could need to be rewritten as UDEV rules or /etc/X11/xorg.d configuration files so may be we'll have to wait for the next train...

Just my 1/2 cent (en français on pourrait dire : juste mon demi sou)
