Subject: x11-base/xorg-server: Remove dead x11-proto/xf86rushproto dependency

rushproto hasn't been required since upstream commit 8ec79e05feac (in
2005!), and even then it wasn't actually needed!

Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.19, Repoman-2.3.6

Please don't edit dependencies in-line like this.

This warranted a revbump as users will be asking how to remove
x11-proto/xf86rushproto. It won't come up for depclean because of
xorg-server not being scheduled for rebuild automatically until the next
time it is upgraded or --changed-deps option is used (uncommon).


Citing Kenneth Hoste at FOSDEM this year: modifying a package without changing 
its version is a bad idea.
His presentation was very good (video included):
