Would this mean PLIB behaving as sort of an adaptive layer between FG
and X11 or how would this work ?

I dislike the recent XFree86 development as well as you do, but one
should face the fact that it's still in use and will be quite for some
time in the future. We can provide an updated PLIB source tree if we
like that includes changes that are neither in the latest PLIB release
nor in PLIB CVS, but we can't supply the user with the whole display
subsystem that's required for using Flightgear.

Well, als long as PLIB behaves adaptive this wouldn't matter,

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
