I am very sorry to hear this. Your work is appreciated (as is, of 
course, all others working on FOSS-projects) and I hope that it 
will be continued by others. Unfortunately I don't have the required 
skills (or the time for now) to help. This project seems so right... 
building the Xserver on top of OpenGL is the right way to go.

Good luck with your other projects!

Best regards
