It shouldn't be attached to a specific windowing system (ie, X). We
have Berlin (or may at some point), and GNUStep which can run on top of
either; who knows what is to come in the future with GGI and similar
projects. And there is always the possibility of evolutions to
meta-standards which even other OS' windowing systems might adhere to.
Making something X-specific is surely a mistake.
