I noticed on the openSUSE 12.1 install DVD, in dosutils/weirdx, lives an
X server for, presumably, Windows. Not sure what it is there for. Or how
one would use it. There are docs there for the curious.

SUSE installation media have had windows/DOS utilities for a very long time.
The reason is that you can install suse remotely while still having a GUI
installer (e.g. by using the boot parameters "vnc=1 vncpassword=<some
password>") and since there is no vnc client included in a standard windows
installation, it is provided to save some troubles for the regular windows
user who wants to install a server
