  Excellent!!  Now THAT is some nice functionality.

  Though hearing "modern solaris" and "old netbsd" does give me a
chuckle.  But their insistence on sticking with X11R3 for
political/licensing/other-nontechnical-bullshit reasons is truly
absurd.  I remember upgrading to X11R4 for the HUGE performance
benefits when my main desktop (deskside?) machine was a MicroVAX-II
more than TEN YEARS AGO.  Sheesh!

  Xinerama seems like really nice stuff.  Is it stable?
