Now we could argue whether we really need one big X (or XFree) source tree or should rather have Xserver, Xlib, <foo>extentsion, xterm, twm, smaple-client packages. I think such a split up would make lot of sense and allow more fine-grained release. I guess there's also arguments against this, so people who have them please speak up. > We need just basic X APIs, sufficient for GTK and Qt toolkit to be > operational. > Motif support, etc. should be dropped ASAP. Motif is not part of X, it's just yet another toolkit. And lots of applications still need it, even on Linux.
