Unfortunately that's not my intention. I have a completely new WS in
mind, design-wise with no X dependency, just an X legacy support layer
instead. The crucial part of X imho is the hardware support, that's
why I want to stick to xorg-drivers*, just because that's the bit
which can't be done properly without driver experts. can't be
fixed because it consists of all the X10 and X11 legacy we don't want
to carry on in a new WS, we want a different WS, not a state-machine
WS like X. And won't be willing to accept patches which change
its internal behavior radically.

Kind regards,
