Ah, I see, misunderstanding.

I'm a bit confused. Rushing through the GGI and XGGI homepage I got the
impression that XGGI is a layer between an application requiring Xlib
functions and libggi. That would be your mentioned Xlib-wrapper,
directing all Xlib function to ggi/gii functions.
Please give me an explanation what XGGI exactly is and whether it needs a
running X Server or not.

Hm, guess I'm not masochistic enough to do so.

as I mentioned, I don't want to do this.
