As long as I don't want any security updates.

Actually I can work around it.  My concern is for those people who do not
read these lists and get caught unawares.  It is a REAL pain in the ass to
get hit by one of these sort of surprises out of the blue, especially this
far into a release.

Well, you get what you pay for when you blindly apply updates.  If you really
do care about having a stable platform, you usually pay attention to the
updates your applying...

And if one of the critical security patches has dependancies on X, what then?

That brings up another unasked question...

When you update X 7.1, what else has to be updated? I would assume GTK and Qt. What else? Anything using Xlib directly? All X apps? Just how big of an update is that going to be?
