I think some people willl be interested in running Xorg instead of 
AppleX11.  Knowing how to compile it is nice for when we will be able to 
install everything without collising like fink does.

I'd say there is noone working on the progressive profile at the moment. 
  As far as I know, Kito doesn't have a progressive setup as well. 
Hopefully the progressive profile will be deprecated eventually.

that everyone may see, I'd suggest to mail over the mailing lists, as 
anyone can respond and learn from and to your questions :)
