Could somebody who is involved with X.org comment on the claims made by Luc Verhaegen in his <a href="http://libv.livejournal.com/13685.html">blog</a>? Basically, he's saying that a lot of the shiny newness like modesetting in RandR 1.2 was first implemented by him, that Keith Packard told him is was impossible, and that once he proved otherwise Keith picked up his work but is failing to give credit where credit is due.
I am not involved in the X.org development in any way, so I have no way at all of knowing if his claims hold any water, but it would be interesting to know.
