Just to double-check - are all the libs exactly those of the Xorg extension as opposed to coming from rpm's?

All the libs here are from the Xorg 7.4 extension.  I had changed them out early on from the rpm files.  This way there is overwrite, but no conflict since they are the exact same files.  This extension gets updated whenever Xorg gets updated to prevent issue.

Actually, I was planning to do some separation with 7.5, ie Xorg-7.5-libs, Xorg-7.5-extra-input outside of Xorg-7.5. Both to bring its size down, and to remove duplication.

It might be good to also separate out the 3d drivers?

@Juanito: indeed, not everyone needs 3d, just better 2d.
