    What more?

    What more can be done to slim down the X.org code base?

    Do we really need all that legacy X stuff from 20 years ago?

    Why cant we just use KDrive or something similar?

    Also what is the progress on X12?

          It's called Wayland and it's coming along quite well.

            ... wait, Mesa has worked on OpenVMS? I'll have to go fetch my old Alpha workstation and the OpenVMS hobbyist CD to test...

              RTFA, this is not about X11.
