Default Agreed

the Xorg 7.3 ABI is incompatible.
The painless solution is to just stick with Xorg 7.2 for the time being.
However, there are a few things I fail to understand.
Xorg is Open Source, there have been a few RCs, every Dev knew what was coming.
Is the wretched thing THAT incompatible, everything has to be made from scratch ?
If so, why was the Linux driver availible as soon as 7.3 was out ?
(Not to mention that Linux adopted 7.3 earlier than FreeBSD)
Is it so much more difficult to write a BSD driver, even if you already have one for Linux ?
Are we facing politics here ?
Is there is a whole team for Linux, while Zander is on his own ?
