Keith noted that the policy of splitting the X drivers from the core server has not worked as well as they would have liked.
Can someone confirm: This is not referring to the recent modularization effort, but the stable ABI introduced with XFree86 4, right?

What's wrong with using Linux virtual terminals? We've had fast user switching since day one!
