Okay, updated to:

          As described in the section called “Overview of X11R7.7”, this
Nested    release contains several X servers that either display onto another X
and       server (Xephyr & Xnest), or render into a virtual memory framebuffer
virtual X (Xvfb & Xfake). These may be replaced in a future release by use of

          drivers which perform the same tasks.
