Hmm, I'll not comment on GUI things, but have two internal feature suggestions :
1) One Intel machine, NO kernel from 2.6.30 up to 3.9.9 does load i915.ko automatically . Xorg then modprobes i915 :
bash-3.00# strings `which Xorg` | grep mod
Without proper entry in some i915.conf I would need to run bootmanager to put i915 to the ADDLIST incl modeset=1 parameter if
# CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS is not set
doing modesetting by default .
Old Xorg-1.3.0 does not like modesetting very much for i915 but
Xorg since at least 1.7 does not work without modesetting for intel_drv.so in my observations .
Problem then is that bootmanager filters out already loaded modules when X is up .
When I reload the i915 kernel object at the prompt, I am not able to tell bootmanager that I want it to handle i915, because it is already loaded .
2) Deprecate SKIPLIST in /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG and use a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file thats been altered by bootmanager for the
