It may be ugly in some ways but incorporating it in wineX11.drv has the big
that it would not be easy to leverage it off to other possible display
drivers such as the
quartz driver. Windows 2K/XP does appear to do it mostly in the Eng... GDI
which would have been another possibility.
Vista changed the entire GDI/display driver business seriously again and I
have no idea
how it does work there.
