that's why i'm asking. To do it that way in port system, because Xorg
started to follow "linux way" and "kde/gnome way" i.e.
- adding hald as a "requirement" by default
- disabling CTRL-ALT-backspace by default - of course user should not
leave X session, it's forbidden ;)

Actually X11 isn't quite unix philosophy, it should be graphics support in
console driver, but it's not possible to do it now with so many gfx cards.
I wonder how long it will take that we will have to build our own

Actually not many unix users do need all these 3D functions. most just
need framebuffer with 2D acceleration.
