Mystery to me..the code is loaded with many ifdef's, the use of which is
probably 'just-in-case' legacy stuff.
Loosing a few as things are changed is maybe a good idea now.

I only use GLX built versions and:- 

start Xwin :%DISNO% -emulate3buttons -multiwindow -clipboard
-silent-dup-error -clipupdates 5 -fp tcp/%XFT%:7100 -xkbmodel pc105
-xkblayout g


start Xwin :%DISNO% -notrayicon -lesspointer -screen 0 1024x768+125+100
-query %XFT% -emulate3buttons -fp tcp/%XFT%:7100 -xkbmodel pc105 -xkblayout

where XFT is a linux font server
and DISTNO is the display 0,1,3 etc

So my coding and testing tends not to stray beyond these uses, locales or
into 'unix' window managers. All my X windows are also from remote linux
clients (typically without graphics cards). Using bugzilla may mop up a few
people with broader needs. I've also noticed that recent xorg tree changes
blow us out of the water..I just had a problem with Xming loosing xkb stuff
for instance, so Xwin changes can be driven from 'outside' this list's
scope, even if we change nothing!
