We'll have to disagree that X is good at anything.

Rather than X or rolling a new one, there are several efforts underway
at creating a "better X than X" for Linux.

And to sound like a brokern record that others have been playing too
(such as Kelly), there's a cost/benefit to supporting HTTP,
etc. rather than (or at least before) the X protocol.
