It would seem to me that you should be able to get X running before Linux is completely booted for users that want a GUI. Now with the XFree86 fork, perhaps it will be possible to initialize the kernel and X with perhaps the user's GUI of choice. It also seems that it should take advantage of multiple cpus and hyperthreading when available.
