The problem that can occur are if you recompile X clients with old
X libraries, but new OS includes/libs.  There should be no problem
if you arrange to use the old includes/libs when compiling X clients.

Are there any plans to extend the resolution & depth :-)

Well, realistically, when do you hope to have an alpha version.  I may
buy a graphics board sometime this year, and have so far only looked at
the Retina.  If you think this server will be ready soon, I might check
the Picasso out as well.  Yes, I know, I'm not that fast releasing packages
myself, remember ADOSFS?  Speaking of which,  CGD has made an elegant
system handling unknown VFSs, so the ADOSFS LKM will soon be able to run
on generic binary kernels (i.e. when COMPAT_09 are dropped from the
GENERIC kernel, and I've released a small patch).
