My clarification of my position was exactly as connected to previous
statements as your accusation of the garbage you were spouting about

Thanks for your help in this matter.

More importantly, it allows the attachment of st frontends other than
xlib-based ones to the controlling process, meaning that there can be
directfb or console-based frontends, among other things.
