For ones that are deserved, yes. You'd think that at a minimum there
would at least be a line in input section of the xorg.conf man page
saying the information there is obsolete and good luck finding what
replaced it, but there isn't even that much of a hint anywhere
in the most likely place to look for one.

Enough perfectly justified cheap shots and I might someday perform
the miracle of getting a linux developer to think "Hmmm... If we
improve this so much no one can understand how to use it, that
isn't really an improvement is it?". (But I don't hold out any
real hope of that happening).
