Surely you can write it as an extension, and maybe that is possible for
the toolkits to do themselves once there's some better modularity in
But right now, writing an extension for this is, in my opinion, not
really Xouvert's concern.

i think it is of Xouvert's concern. if i understand what you are talking about correctly, heres the senario:

once xouvert's api starts pulling away from XFree86's, normal X apps wont compile under xouvert. shouldn't compatability with xfree86 apps be at least a concern? a loadable module for xouvert, like "xf86-compat" or something like, would make simple x apps, all the way up to glib, gtk, etc, compile and be able torun under xouvert, while native xouvert apps can run alongside and use xouvert specific routines happily.

if im thinking clearly, then i think an xfree86 compatability module is essential, and i'd be willing to work on/manage that if it's desired.

tell me if im crazy
