This is what I have been thinking. We can move parts of UML back to 
a subsytem mode and them implement a Xsever in to Win32k.sys/GDI32.
You wouldnt even need to recompile X applications provided we implement
X properly. All that would be needed is a modded Xserver and X libs.
The client libs should still work using X protocal and Xtenstions.

This type of hybrid system could then run any application Windows or Linux
and would not suffer from the same problems WINE does because it would
be a real Linux Kerenl and GLIBC running.
