So? Fabrice has said that he'll add support got the Win32 GUI directly if some
one sends a patch for it ... surely this makes it hard to port to the Linux

The idea is, use XLib when qemu is compiled under a *nix, use Win32 for Windows,
the OSX Gui (Aqua?) for Mac OS X, etc. I don't see what the problem here is.

Furthermore, there is a patch for Xlib already. So I ask, why not?

Not a bad idea imho, tho not optimal.
