I realise that. I was asking 'does it help if we were to change that?'
1) Have something else represent the X applications
2) Have a seperate program (maybe w/o an icon?) for the Xserver
Then we have two ways in which things get started:
1) Automatic (no manual start of Xquartz, so no icon for it per-se)
2) Manual (so an actual Dock icon for the server, and the existing one for the 'Apps')
The only reason I suggest this is that i've a vague memory of the
server code playing games to fake out the Dock's view of which
program is in the forground when an actual X appliation is running.
Output by the Xserver when it's in the background would not be an issue,
the only difficulty is getting k/b input. One could simply have the
'X app program' feed such to the server say XTEST, or via some other
back door channel.
