The wayland comments weren't meant to be something taken super literally, he was talking about a cut down, lightweight, minus-legacy version of X11, i was implying that by the time they specced it out (Cuz remember, the three input subsystems are all inter-dependent on eachother, so lets go make a fourth that is those 3 done right to keep things lightweight >_> *only half sarcasm*) figured out what exactly could be cut / replaced / conjoined, wrote anything that needed to be wrote, coded anything that needed to be coded, tested it, and released it... Wayland would be even closer to adoption, if not being used already.

EDIT: the "X12 is Wayland" comment I made was more about the spirtiual succesor, yes I know X12 was being written and worked up, but I dont think any of the main Xorg devs are actively working on it anymore... least none that I've heard, Daniel could probably confirm this: Most of X.org's devs have or will probably throw their weight in with Wayland rather than write up an X12, correct?
