The long-term goal is to rebase nx-libs against current Xorg code and
have it even potentially merged upstream. This will however require a
lot of funding or alternatively time. We discussed this issue to great
length during the last X2Go meeting in October/November 2014.

Meanwhile, Mike is currently factoring out a lot of dead code which has
been copied verbatim by NoMachine, but is not actually used for building
nx-libs. And doing a tremendous job at that.
