Xorg is going in the right direction but i still find it hard to 
understand xserver code to able to do something meanigful. Even if i 
have done janitor stuff on my own. Still cant reconcile the theory 
with actual implementation. Im beginning to think that trying to 
implement my own understanding of the theory and cmparing to the 
actual code will yield better understanding.
