personally i do not see much point or advantage over directfb,
as most cards do not get acceleration with kdrive and use
slow vesa modes anyway.

btw. what is your video card? many cards do not get accel or
maintained drivers even with standard Xorg...

can you test at all how Xorg works on your platform? sticking
some larger drive or using root-over-nfs for testing shouldn't be
so difficult... this would allow you to just first-hand experience
test various distros and options...

also you did not mention which CPU TYPE your embedded arch uses.
is it x86? arm? something else?
