The issue in the current naming scheme (sharing the same class name for 
impls) is that it assumes one X11 im impl per *platform*. Same 
IMs/WindowManagers can be shared across platforms, or one platform can 
have multiple IM/WM (e.g., the example I wrote below MAWT/XAWT 
co-exist), and the current design cannot deal with these situations.
