A prime principle of the project should be to retain backwards compatability so that older applications may still run. Stop destroying backwards compatability and get around to fixing the memory leaks for god sake. also seems to be intent on locking itself out of the embedded/cell market by removing support for low depth displays. I am throughly dismayed and disgusted with

If this backwards compatibility is causing you such a massive headache,
why has it taken you 7 years to complain to us that XFree86 removed
PEX & XIE support in their 4.2.0 release in 2002, several years before
