This has been discussed quite a few times before.
As long as it doesn't increase the size of Nano-X or applications
using Nano-X, then I'm all for it. However, I still believe that
to make Nano-X anywhere near source compatible with X, you'd have
to add a lot of cruft that doesn't belong in a small, compact system.
