My point was exactly the oposite: users will probably not want to havte to 
chose, unless the choices are really different.

Multiple X servers where one does 'A' a little better, but 'B' a little 
worse, and another does 'A' worse but 'B' good, and 'C' does only work 
really on the third X server which can't be reasonably used because of 
'K', ... - in other words: if I need an export to explain to me how the 
different choices differ, I don't think it's a benefit to the users.

So long - I think I've made my point.
