I had a look and XCB, and it looks quite promising as a "better Xlib". What is
not so clear to me is:
* X.Org seems to use it as a basis for their Xlib implementation. Is this
* What about XFree86?
* What about X11 implementations on *BSD, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, etc.?
* Is XCB 100% feature-complete compared to Xlib?
I guess that XCB is not widespread enough yet to drop the X11 package now, but
I'd like to hear what others think. OTOH, a Haskell binding for XCB can
probably be generated automatically to a large degree via XSLT, if I
understand things correctly, which would be a big plus.
