You love Openbox, I like Openbox, but if Openbox cannot follow the 
developments (Wayland, Mir..) then it will be a dead project.
LXDE and Razor-QT teams now a are in cooperation and LXDE will 
eventually make the switch from GTK+ to QT. About the Display Server ? 
Hmmm, I don't know the final goal, it seems that Wayland is more 
attractive for them, but I personally believe that until Wayland becomes 
fully operational, fully functional, will spent..years ? We'll see.
