If someone really misses functionality, we should fix that deficiency in hw/xfree86, xf86-video-dummy, or xf86-video-nested.  Also, there's nothing stopping anyone from using older server versions if they still need these DDXs.

I use 

Xvfb :1 -fbdir /var/tmp/
export DISPLAY=:1
sdl-gnash  --screenshot 0 --screenshot-file $IMG.tmp -r1 -t1 $SWF

kind of a flash ripper . 

in other day I saw /usr/bin/xvfb-run is in use on building

how we test X in a server without displays ?
