Mostly irrelevant for Emacs, since we have no experts on that on
board, and no development being done in that direction AFAIK. Without
such development, we will be forever tied to X (and die when it dies),
and any attempts to break those ties will end up like the Cairo build
did, unfortunately, even though the person who worked on that was an
excellent expert (he just left too soon).
