Hi Oleg,

Cool. It seems like this is more or less tied into the X peer
implementation. I think it would be great to factor this stuff out into
some sort of generic peer implementation to be able to use it in other
backends too (I have a couple of backends that I would be happy to reuse
this code). If you think this is feasible (or am I overseeing any
gotcheas?), this would make a great sub-project for my OpenJDK Challenge
project Portable GUI Backends.

Ok, good to know. I wonder why OpenMotif or lesstif is required to build
OpenJDK then?

Cheers, Roman
