I do not know enough about xfs-xtt to comment on it. In fact...this is the
first I have known of its existance.

I supose it would be. The main difference I see is that xfs-xtt is probably
a complete x font server AND truetype font server...which means it can
serve normal X fonts and render truetypes and serve them up.

xfstt ONLY does the second part of that. Thus xfstt is not an xfs replacement.

Reminds me... I need to release xfstt 1.1 since 1.0 had some um...stupid bugs.
