Hi,
I just notice what StepBox really is. dl'ed and it
seems nice but I also have a few suggestions.
Why don't you subclass the XGServer in back-x11 directly?
That way you can use any AppKit classes you wish
and even share a single Display to the X server.
Imagine you can do window decoration in NSView on
back-art. It would be nice to me.

 I just tried using XGServer in StepBox (not subclass from XGServer)
 and it seems to work without major problems.
 But XGServer is a private class and the header is not public,
 I have to get GSDisplayServer from GNUstep.
 I'll try other thing like drawing, etc to see how far I can go.

 If anyone is interested to help, I'll appreciate.
 Otherwise, it will take a long time to finish it.

 Yen-Ju
