Such a thing would NEVER get accepted into the kernel.  There's plenty of
future in command-line driven machines, AAMOF, there is no such thing as
an OS WITHOUT a text-based command-line.  Integrating X into the kernel
would make it impossible to run on a number of platforms, it would be
slow, bloated, buggy.  In fact, it would take on MANY of the problems of
Win95.  Even Win95(in the computing world) is a minority, there are a
number of OSs which have more than twice it's usage.  TTYL!
