Thanks for the input.  I would have been interested in 
this for BL1 or BL2 (which did not have X); however, with 
BL3 I made the decision to provide real X functionality 
and that's the course I am following.

I agree these capabilities are extremely useful; but
they are already in BL3 (by using xterms).  Most Linux
distributions have a lot of redundancy (six different
ways to do the same thing) but not BL3.

I am mainly looking for applications that are completely 
missing in BL3.  What about naim?  Or is that gaim?
Do you have a version that runs on BL3?
