I do think so too actually. They just have a "let's reinvent
everything" tendancy that plays against them. And very very bad PR.
The only problem I have seen with GGI (reading thier documentation) is
that non-framebuffer devices does not seem to be really
supported... if I'm wrong it may be easier to use KGI/GGI for video
support on sgi instead of filling the gaps in XFree86.
This would have the additional side effect to allow the use of SVGAlib
programs and maybe open the way to a nice Mesa integration.
