I will look into a facility providing the isabus to a user process,
like an X-server, however I won't do a port of XFree86.  When the
isabus user process interface is there someone else ought to be able
to do the work with little effort.

I will submit my work to Chris after 1.0 + the first bunch of post-1.0
problems (inevitable, IMHO) have been solved.  At that time I think
the beta-phase of the ISA-drivers (currently COM (plain + AST), LPT 
& 8390 NIC ethernet) have sorted out most fatal bugs.  The Beta has been
delayed due to busyness on my part.  I have a "real" work too.
If he likes the work I've done, I suspect he'll get it incorporated
as soon as he finds time.
