And also I believe the reason why you can't find xvesa is because debian might be installing xvesa as a meta-package with xorg. Can you verify this? I don't have a debian system with me right now.

There is the vesa driver:

But it still has a dependency on xserver-xorg-core

I did a search for packages beginning with xv:

No xvesa,however one possibility maybe xvfb:
