    As I already mentioned, XF86_FBDev does nothing of the sort. It's just a
    stupid frame buffer driver.

    So are you going to duplicate all of the other X servers inside the
    XF86_FBdev driver? Be my guest, but don't expect me to think very highly
    of the project.

    I assume this will be a non-issue once XF86 4.0 with loadable acceleration
    modules are out, then it's just a matter of just not using the mode setup
    code. But again, I don't see why there would be a XF86_FBdev at all even
    then.
