Yes, that's something I'm very keen to look at after I get the Unix/X11
VM working properly on monochrome (and maybe greyscale).  I don't know
if I've got any better understanding of X11 programming though!  ;-)

(I cannot handle the stress of using the colour monitor I've got now for
more than a few hours at a time and so until I can afford a very hi-res
flat-panel screen (or better!) and whatever it takes to drive it best I
have to continue using my very clean 1600x1280 monochrome screen for the
majority of my work.)
