Im currently trying to get the VIA driver merged and updated, and its
going remarkably well for XFree, its only been stalled a week because

I don't know how this tree will pan out but it or something like it is
needed and once its up I will be making sure its got the VIA stuff in if
I can't get it into XFree smoothly, ditto the pen driver fix and other
