From the find man page: "U=unknown type (shouldn't happen)"

@climagic another great part of documentation is this section in the xorg.conf manpage.

IOW, Xorg is so big that nobody can keep track of how it works?

Another reason to rewrite everything on wayland.

@Wolf480pl @climagic
there is probably a huge amount of X code/features which aren't used much anymore (e.g. features which aren't used anymore (as there are X entensions for these) or user interface rendering in the gui toolkit passing bitmaps instead of using the drawing commands in X)

I think quite a few X developers noticed this themselves and are now working on wayland instead (see for example this wayland talk by a former X Developer: youtu.be/RIctzAQOe44)
