The interview was really interesting. If you are going to do follow ups,
could you consider the following questions:

X Alpha channel support: Whenever anybody mentions alpha composition
(translucency), it is said there needs to be support for this at the X
level. What form would this take? A new visual type? Is any work on this
being done, that you know of?

General X extension question: 
When limits in the X architecture are uncovered ( eg alpha composition,
obtaining font details), what is the policy of the gnome team? Is it to
attempt to rectify these shortcomings in X, or implement them in a way
seperated from X?
