I didn't know about your page, but I knew most of the stuff on your page. I have
been reading that DDX guide, but I didn't know where to find the "Strategies of
Porting guide", it didn't come with the X sources AFAIK. I still prefer reading
it in ASCII on screen, do you know where I can find an untroffed version of it?
By the way, I have access to the XFree86 4.0 alpha (beta?) sources since I'm
member of the XFree86 crew.
