You are right that it's because of lack of promotion, I read both xorg 
and xorg-devel and I've never heard of it. And google shows only two 
hits for 'endless vacation of code' (both are state of the xorg 
foundation reports). Is there a wiki page or something describing that 
program in more detail?
