	When they do this with X itself that'll be news but I'm not holding my
	breath.
	We have a Solaris/SGI X/Motif application which we recently ported to
	Linux/Lesstif. Most things worked fine from an operational standpoint
	when it was done but look and feel under Lesstif were sub-optimal and
	consensus was that we probably needed the industrial strength solution
	to get where we needed to go.
