That is exactly why, IMHO of non expert, that all drivers for Video 3D devices, pointing devices and Monitors, that are now in the "USERSPACE" XFree86 code, should pass for "KERNEL SPACE".
The problem in my view, is not a fork of XFree86 or more openness, but a better "STANDARD" model,... and if Linux would allow sometime in the future another kind of "windows generator" besides Xwindows,... and how the code is going to interface Linux Driver Model, with udev, kobjects, sysfs anf possibly DKMS,..., or any other future developments.
OK... XFree is a standard, at it should continue to be, but it dosent need to have a M$ attitude or "WE" could try pass some of that to KDE vs GNOME!...
The Xserver itself, or part of it, that dont thouch directly the HD could then be made in several threads.
If Xouvert is only about openness, then IMO it includes a lot os waste of time.
