You've omitted all the gdk bugs ? Is that in purpose ?

As you know, I'm mainly interested by :

Bug 50504 - Multiple Display Support for X11 implementation

I've worked for the past 3 weeks at intregating my multi display/screen
implementation (I sent to the list a while back) into gdk.

This is done and almost (!) working (minor problem with the event loops 
but the test programs work).

I didn't modify any APIs, I've only added display and/or screen variant to
existing APIs. 

Next step are :
- to clean up the modified gdk/gtk tree (then submit it for review (how?))
- Integrate this enhancement to gtk, 
- define the limits of multihead support (support of "hot display/screen 
swapping" or not)
- etc.

I'd like to talk about these different issues with you and the other
of gtk maintainers at GUADEC to be sure to get it right...

This enhancement should be ready soon, so could you add this
bug id to "Slip past GUADEC" ?
