Assuming "snv" means svn, I defer to the opinion of the openchrome
maintainer on this point.  We regularly ship svn snapshots of the
openchrome driver, but we seem to be on one from March 21.  Don't know
why it hasn't been updated yet.

vesafb is garbage.  Don't use it.

If you install with 'xdriver=vesa', the installer will write out a
minimal config file setting the X driver to vesa.

Why would we do that when we could just package a version of the driver
that just works?
