DeskView/X allows you to compile X *CLIENTS* under
DOS that talk X. They have Motif libraries also. There are
also a couple others that i have heard about but their names don't
jump out at me (since I don't deal with DOS at all..).

This is the way that I see things.. STDWIN is still there and people
can make inprovements as people need... MotifWIN comes into being
and people make improvements as people need. Both have their uses.
People programming in Python can choose which to program against
by "import"'ing the one they want. There is no need for one to REPLACE
