That's pretty neat, but Xephyr is kind of laggy even on a fat laptop.
It certainly won't be any good for running SDL based games, for
instance.  I do that on my XO right now by killing matchbox and starting
twm, which is obviously not appropriate for non-developer use.

Wouldn't it be better to fix Sugar and Matchbox to handle "normal"
applications running directly on the real X server?
