No. Not really. But I have a minor in psychology and I dated a girl that
later became a shrink.

That's what Fedora claims.  :-)  Examples? Just a few.

I won't name other distro names here. But as I said I can't think of one
major one that will not, or already does not, have Xorg 1.6 and C-A-B is
disabled. And several a set to release very soon.

Me? If I wanted, or needed, this I would go the xorg.conf route. Much less
work and much less effort. If, in the future, xorg.conf is abandoned I would
then consider compiling my own. It is a little more time consuming than you
might think I would bet.

Good Luck.
