Xorg server aborts when composite extension is disabled
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the following somewhere in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/:
Option "Composite" "Disable"
2.Try to run Xorg
Xorg does not crash
Upstream bug was marked fixed several days ago, long after "last updated" 2018-04-09 20:40 EDT and F28's server 1.19.6-7 was posted to mirrors on 12 April, so crashing remains.

F28 coredump from running 4.16.6 kernel and Xorg server 1.19.6-8
27 used to be OK, but not for several months, same as 28.
xorg-x11 hasn't been a real component since like FC4.
Why do you think disabling Composite is a thing you need to do?
Personal computing devices are expected to be personalized. Motion and fuzziness that KDE developers and others seem to think are cool or enhancements are annoying, often detracting from usability or accessibility. It seems like a waste to permit resources to be consumed by them. Shutting them off globally seems the most efficient way to eradicate them.
Server 1.20.1 in F29 works as expected.
This is gone in F29 and F30.
