We could easily add a app/accessx git module to host it, but I think
we'd want to leave it as a contrib module instead of part of the X.Org
katamari's due to the Motif dependency (which would cause having to
build Motif partway through the X.Org module builds, since Motif depends
on our libX11 & libXt).
