I have no problem with the takeover, but see below.

The last time I tried updating to Xaw3d-1.5E, xfig linked against that 
version core dumped right away as soon as you clicked on some button. 
That was the reason I never update from Xaw3d-1.5D to Xaw3d-1.5E in the 
distro, although gv and xemacs seem to work fine with Xaw3d-1.5E.

Do you now if that xfig problem has been solved with the X.Org version 
of Xaw3d ?
