A quick diff against X11R6.6 shows we're very close to that source -
I would imagine if we dug up the X11R6 sources we'd be virtually
identical other than the Imakefile changes to build ours into a
dynamically loadble shared module.

We certainly haven't touched the code in years and have discussed
EOL'ing it from Solaris since we thought no one used it.  If Mozilla
actually does use it, thats news to us.
