The current situation split I have planned is so:
DirectFB: windowing system using directFB multi-app capabilities
DirectFBlib: DirecFB based graphics and font rendering (very basic)

In the future there may be an addition something like:
This will still use DirectFB but will draw using artlib.  Pretty reasonable,

On the other hand...

Has there been any discussion of creating a deeper hierarchy of directories
for the backend?

Maybe Something like?



This would prevent a confusing clutter if different windowing systems start
using libart
