This basically amounts to writing a window manager and a bunch of
related code, and would be a fairly large part of the system.

As long as the interface is general enough that I can use for more
exotic experiments, I'm ok with this. Should I move
Source/art/ARTWindowBuffer.m to Source/x11/XWindowBuffer.m ? It does
require a few pieces of information about the pixel format that the
backend needs to provide, but not much.
