Default Request to add klibc-915resolution to extra

I'd like to add a klibc version of 915resolution to extra. 915resolution
is unnecessary for Xorg these days, it is however useful when compiled
with klibc if you want to use uvesafb for widescreen framebuffer. Any
objections?

As long as it's an optional hook it's fine to me.
Can you add a klibc compiled version to the regular 915resolution
package instead of having a 915resolution-klibc?

All hooks are optional!

I'd have to move that in from community, as I have to keep it in sync
with klibc all the time. However, I don't see a point in having
915resolution around except for klibc, as the only use nowadays is
adjusting the resolutions for uvesafb - nobody uses the old i810 xorg
driver anymore. If you insist I'll talk to voidnull about moving his
community packages to extra.

There's a large group with older hardware that still uses the i810
driver, but remember i810 is completely broken with xorg-server 1.5, so
we shouldn't care about it anymore.
