Yeah, it's not my favorite way of working, but I think we're past that now,
and really the 'private' discussions were pretty boring phone calls (and
included XFree86, KDE and Gnome developers).

Wow.  That would be insane. Independent of the fact that X servers built 
with 'my' backend (kdrive) are designed to be used on tiny embedded 
devices.  As I understand it, glib doesn't deal with out-of-memory well, 
and the X server kinda needs to handle that case and keep running.
