That future date should (I hope) be before the next DragonFly release, if
at all possible, or else we'll end up with the old version of xorg
trailing around until the 2.2 release.

The 'it' I referred to when asking about dropping it was the whole file -
are those other values also going to be set to the same by default?  What
I'm working towards is: will there be any noticeable change for users,
other than possibly X11_TYPE, if that file goes away?
