Kay, you're right, the quartz driver is stubbed out, and will  
probably stay as is until the graphics drivers' factorization in  
user32 is completed, or sufficiently advanced :( The winex11 -> user  
move tends to be really tricky as we could break many things for x11  
platforms with those modifications. We also need to do that in a way  
that is acceptable for Alexandre. Which means, I think, not to  
reproduce the past errors (like extensive inter-calls between user32  
and x11drv)  in the x11drv architecture, that Alexandre had been  
fixing during last x11drv rewrite.
