'Inofficial' backends, that is, those that aren't included in
gnustep-back. Right now, if you want to work on a project that does
need to override anything in XG*.h you will need to manually copy
those files over to your project tree so they can get included. That
may make it pretty... incompatbile to other releases.

Yes, I agree. OTOH, then there shouldn't be any Headers/gnustep/...
include directory.
As I see it, anything 'under' Headers/gnustep/... isn't supposed to be
used in a regular / 'normal' project anyway.
