alright Dave thanks for the heads up :)

Alright ill reduce th scope of proposal and limit it to xephyr; focusing to
make possible shatter rendering.

Ok ill modify the proposal to focus on shattered rendering on two Xephyr
screens and focus some considerable time on testing and polishing the
impedance layer.

work on if time permits.

Yeah getting up to speed with the system and code base will take some time
and undestanding the whole picture. Thanks ill email you when ive modified
the proposal.
