Last time I heard anything about it work on it was
disencouraged, I don't know if this was because they wanted to
make Linux stronger on the desktop (this was before the
smartphone era) or if they thought working on it would
increase complexity and introduce bugs, and that would be bad
since, as we heard in another post already, it is relied upon
not just by Emacs powerusers but also for debugging when
X fails ...
