And if I were told that to work on X I'd have to emulate some
ill-defined Linuxism - which is sure what that sounded like - I
wouldn't want to work on it either.

I wouldn't mind working on X support - indeed, I'm basically doing it
now for the non-peecees I use.  I have no interest in working on
support, especially since it seems to include things like discarding
support for non-24bpp hardware, or non-GPU hardware.

I probably shouldn't still be on this list, actually, come to think of
it.  The original reason no longer applies, and X.org _is_ perverted
from X's original goal in those ways I have no use for nor (positive)
interest in.
