	Is there any plan to build-in X window system support as was done for
	Sunview?  This might make it accessible to a larger community of users.
	Perhaps Interviews or Xt support...

We originally used X, a year or two ago, and found it was much too slow.
We plan to experiment with XGL, a Sun libarary that promises good
performance when used with OpenWindows and a local GX.
