Hi Teika,

As far as I know there hasn't been a lot of development to fix that,
theres not enough pain for now.
Unfourtunatly it would mean re-implementing a lot of X11's core
protocol as new extensions.

Probably a better way to fix that would be to create X12, or to use
something different like e.g. Wayland.
But don't get me wrong, I don't think Wayland will solve all problems
magically just because its not called X ;)
