Yes, but personally I think it's much better for people to be using
released versions of X, with CVS versions of the unichrome driver.
Correct the unichrome driver is now regularly copied over to the x.org
cvs tree, and so when there is a new x release, whatever the version of
unichrome that has been copied over will be included, so a lot of users
will get the unichrome support "for free".
...however, the unichrome driver is frequently being updated, so for
cutting edge apps that are using the 'being developed' features such as
MythTV it makes sense to be using the bleeding edge version of the
unichrome driver and be prepared to keep it regularly updated.
