Unfortunately, no, I don't have commit privileges.  I'm just getting  
into the myth stuff myself.  My backend is on a Linux box though.

No, I would imagine it should be using Qt/Mac.  I would imagine that  
it's probably linked into your Qt/X11 libraries that you had in /sw  
and once you ditch those that the Xinerama stuff will go away.

No problem.  I also think it'd be cool to get a backend running on  
the Mac.  I've got a few of them hanging around, and a firewire box  
to capture with.  If you need someone else to test your backend code,  
I'm sure I can load it up and take a look when you're done.
