BTW one thing you could do that would probably be of a higher speed than
vanilla X11 would be to send data in plain structs without marshalling.
I would imagine (I've never looked though) that X11 does some kind of
marshalling of data to make it byte-order, byte-size, etc. independent.
If D11 is just running on one machine, you don't need that kind of thing.
You may even be able to write some of the data from client to server
without a copy (apart from what TCP/IP itself does).
Dunno, but it's an idea,
