Well, xorg-server-1.2 is stable and meant to be a part of the X11R7.2 release... It's 1.3 that is the "development" version... That's why xorg-server-1.2 actually displays it's version as 7.2.0 and xorg-server-1.3 just displays it's version as 1.3, which will throw the ATI installer for a loop because their is no x130 directory in the installer archive. xorg-server-1.1.0 identifies itself as version 7.1.0 and xorg-server-1.0.1 identifies itself as version 7.0
The above link is THE difinitive source for "stable release" xorg module versions. If you start mishmashing module versions, then technically, your not running a "stable" xorg release... That kinda makes me nervous with such a huge package set that is meant to act as one... When I build gnome I don't cross 2.18 with 2.14 packages. Deviate too much from what the developer intends and I guarantee you'll get breakage...
