I'm stuck running X server 1.14 because of this bug:

Everything was working fine by holding back from upgrading to xorg server 1.15 UNTIL today when libgcrypt got upgraded and broke Xorg server (/usr/bin/X: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

The upgraded libgcrypt is incompatible with Xorg server 1.14

Suggestion: Mask off libgcrypt for those of use stuck with Xorg server 1.14 so that libgcrypt won't upgrade and cause breakage.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

OH LOVELY! I just downgraded manually and realized that systemd now *requires* libgcrypt2. For a library like this that could very well be used by multiple programs that need different versions, could we please have the ability to install both versions in tandem?
