Nice ! mdev is indeed pretty fast. I have to use this for my stuff
as well. udev is like watching the whole life of paint from drying
until it falls off the wall :-(

This size is still a bit on the large side, tough. Andy and I have
been discussing this thing last week and we think that one could
bring the size down considerably by using SDL instead of X. The
tricky bit is to reduce the number of dependencies on other
libraries. I think Guillaume may have started to work on this
