I'm not saying that because I only heard that. Stefan (doing the
packages) is sitting in the room right next to me, and there *are*
issues. This *is* alpha. Heck, it isn't even in Factory yet (Alpha2),
and we don't even use it internally ATM.
This is *only* available from the opensuse build service so far.

No, Xorg 7.1 will still use /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
getconfig has only been used if there is no configuration file. This is
the some for some releases now, but you do not want to use X11 without
configuration file, believe me. Not yet.
