No I didn't. However, the patch doesn't really use the specific features
of Xaw3d, so it shouldn't be too hard to adapt it to make it work 
with plain Xaw. The advantage of Xaw3d is that it has already a more 
modern look and feel. (With plain Xaw, one would get a possibly strange
combination of antialiased fonts with old style widgets...) In any case,
it wouldn't be a big overhead except for the additional use of freetype.

Best regards,
Jean-Pierre Demailly
