I have been thinking a lot about this lately. The main purpose is to 
write an opengl based xserver right? Then how is this possible with 
the current xorg server? If glitz is in the server how are we going to 
export the glitz api? Through the xrender extension? Can we also put 
cairo in the server? Or is cairo client side only. How does the xorg 
server manage client windows now?
