I got to try out this X server, and it seems to work quite well.  Here is 
the output on starting it:

Running WindowMaker-0.60.0-4, on a PowerBook 2400/180

The only thing I saw out of the ordinary, were the verticle bars that would 
appear when moving windows fast.  (Altho moving the xmms (mp3 player) 
window didn't seem to leave any artifacts)  Also, if I drug windows between 
desktops, verticle bars or other artifacts would appear in the window being 
moved.  Usually Yellow or Blue it seems (this could just be for me tho)

I booted in Linux with it running a video driver (not the OF based one), 
does this make a diffrence, would you like to know of any other setups?

On a side note, I noticed that when I run with the video driver on the 
2400, the first time I start X, instead of a "grey" pixely screen, it has a 
blue hue to it, and it will seg fault, but if I try running it again, it 
starts up correctly, and goes into WindowMaker.

On my machine, I was able to exit WindowMaker just fine with out any 
errors, or hard reboots.

I'll keep playing with it, and tell you what I find, if you have any 
specific requests, please do ask!

Thanks for your hard work, time and effort!!!!

PS After Spell checking the email, I see that register has a typo in the 
Xpmac out put. <shrug>
