This option sounds risky.  If you can ensure that you can do this and
it will not break Xaw3d as a drop-in replacement for Xaw, then I guess
I don't have a problem with it, although it sounds kludgy.  I guess
that I would prefer the completely separate libraries, although it is
a lot of space. :( Frankly I don't see a reall obvious good solution
here, although I would list not breaking Xaw3d as a drop-in for Xaw as
an absolute requirement for any solution.

Just my 2cents
