I agree this would be an easy way to fix the problem, but I also think that
there's nothing wrong with having /X11R6. I think this kind of separation is
quite useful (unlike /usr) because the user knows, for instance, that a lib
in /X11R6/lib is for X clients and that programs in /X11R6/bin are all either
X clients or programs related to the X server. Also, "rm -rf /X11R6" should
remove eveything related to X...

Does Debian have a policy on the whole directory hierarchy? ;)
