Patches for the core server and the Intel driver already existed in the
Moblin project. I ported them over to the latest version of X and fixed
some bugs.
The required changes are part of the X11:XOrg package and thus in Factory

That one, right?

This is the one for the server. There is another one for the Intel driver

3. Extend the displaymanager startup script to
a. test for the presence of the 'copy' command, and if present

now so it should be available in Factory shortly.

Thanks for pointing this out!
