/usr/X11* is there for historic reasons - nothing more.  I'm sure there are
thousands of applications that are hard-coded to use /usr/X11R6/*, which
changing this would break everything.

Otherwise, it would be integrated into the standard naming scheme.

Btw, how is Berlin going?  Still using CORBA for strings? <snicker, grin>

Do they have a complete widget set yet?  Are any useful applications using it
