For those who care about KDrive ...

ajax did a pretty good job in removing all the DDXes and unused APIs like
KAA, but I think there's a pretty long way to go until we have something
that's really ideal.

Of course, I'd desperately love to see it unexist, but hw/xfree86 is
still a little while away from being that server.  Our tablets will be
running Xorg shortly, but hey, we're talking about 256MB+ RAM, 256+ MB
flash, and an ARM11, so it's more MID than tablet/phone/consumer device.

So it's probably worth caring about for a little while yet: even if
hw/kdrive does just become hw/xephyr, there's still a fair bit of work
to do there.

I'd like a chat about KDrive on xorg@ though: there's a lot of stuff we
can get rid of still and make the API actually properly usable (esp.
input: don't know about you guys, but Bluetooth mice are nice to have as
far as we're concerned; plus, stuff like linuxPciScan and the whole OS
'abstraction' is a trainwreck), so I'd like to cover those before
anything really gets merged into there.  I have a couple of minor fixes
from the Maemo tree to add also, but nothing really major (the most
notable being to add an Xv hook for ClipNotify).

Anyway, gods yes, and thanks for kicking on with the Tinderbox.
