Good one.  That's /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Resources/WindowServer
on this 'ere 10.4.latest box.  Is it safe to assume that that's where it
lives on *all* OS Xes?

Alternatively, I could just assume that no-one uses OpenDarwin, given
that the project died from lack of interest.
