I remember I had looked into one of the first attempts to package NX
(back in 2003 or so, don't remember - never came to any relevant
result).  Since then I wonder whether somebody has really tried to
work out the following two questions:

  1. Did anybody *really* *honestly* tried to base NX protocol
     on plain X libraries?  If this is not possible
  2. Did anybody *really* *honestly* tried to push NC protocol
     into upstream X?

In other words:  Is this whole "copy of outdated X libs" issue just a
communication problem between two groups of coders?

Kind regards
