[Xquartz-dev] RFC: Combining both X11.apps into one

I just committed a patch that combines both X11.apps into one  
application and intelligently determines what to do at execution. See http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=xorg/xserver.git;a=commit;h=0284b3631a4c501d7b3f39774dbc2416c4121c58

I know I was confused about the two different versions, so I thought  
this might help out the situation.  If you try it out, make sure you  
grab the updated LaunchAgent plist (also in the commit) and restart  

Note that this hasn't fixed the "extra dock icon" problem or anything  
like that.  I hope to figure out a solution to that as I work on this  
refactoring of the startup process, but I'm not there yet.  As an end  
goal, I'd like X11.app to *really* be Xquartz rather than fork to  
execute it.  I think that might make it a bit cleaner and clear up any  
weird double-icon problems.

Comments and feedback on this would be appreciated... especially if  
you are partial to having this division, I'd like to hear from you.
