        XOrg and windows/mac

        Would these changes allow to run XOrg rootless in windows or macOS (or even AmigaOS, OS/2 and others), allowing to a seamless work with X apps under these systems?

          Cool

          About time!

              The X server already runs rootless on those platforms - this is making it easier to use that existing code on Linux & Unix platforms.
