Sorry, I sent that email long before it actually got through and just  
assumed apathetic response and killed them off (we can bring them back  
easily if they're ever needed).

Fullscreen support would be great (and is a high priority), but the  
code in fullscreen/ is not how to do it.  AFAICT, that code never even  

As for cr, I agree it would be neat to use native windows maybe and  
lightening the responsibility of quartz-wm... but I think that would  
be best for a bigger rewrite at some point down the line (and be  
kdrive based).

If I actually am misunderstanding some understanding here (QUITE  
possible), please let me know and I'll bring them back.  I agree cr  
could be useful and I was most hesitant about getting rid of it (it  
was removed from the official xorg-server tarballs but still in git,  
so I decided just to kill it off for consistency).


The main reason I'm doing this is the dependencies, headers, etc are  
all garbled up.  We've got just about every .c file pretty much  
including every .h file and making their own prototype declarations  
and extern declarations.  I'm going to clean this up a bit.   
Additionally, I'm going to put the function prototypes for interface  
functions (DarwinModeBlah) into their own header file (like  
darwinKeyboard_interface.h) which will be included by the implementer  
(like quartz/quartzKeyboard.c) rather than  have quartzKeyboard.c  
include all of darwin.h and darwinKeyboard.h. ... and similarly for  
quartz's interface to xpr (or cr or a future kdrive based version).

This cleanup plus associated documentation should help others jump in  
a little easier.
