If you want to do some large work to increase the use of FPC I would
recommend creating a Window Manager instead, probably with fpgui.

The work is imensely smaller, althougth still large, and a window
manager usually comes with lot's of useful gui software, so this would
be an opportunity to distribute all kinds of software made with fpc
and lazarus.

My open source project, for example, the Virtual Magnifying Glass,
suffers in linux because KDE only wishes to distribute C++/Qt software
and Gnome only distributes C and C# software, so it get's hard to be

And don't expect people from the list to join your initiative. Usually
you have to start the project alone and get something working before
one or two people join in. Don't expect everyone to stop what they are
doing to help you in what you think is important.
