from a user perspective, multiple X servers to chose from which are 
almost but not exaclty the same is most confusing. AFAICT this is not 
like having KDE and GNOME and .. in the archive because they are really 
different, but this is more like the kernel having 3 different drivers 
for NCR53c8xx SCSI chips, and how should the user know which to use and 
why (difference in the scale, obviously)...
