The original goal of libsl was to have multiple back-ends (for libdraw). I have
a local version right now that is simply a cp x11/drw.c x11/drw.h. All the
function interfaces are the same and no dwm.c or dmenu.c code changes are
neccesary (right now).

When the initial version is ready and some (old and) new bugs are squashed it
will be posted for review ofcourse.

Kind regards,
