With XCB around, is it really necessary to retrofit Xlib with those changes? Either way, client apps will need to be updated, and XCB brings a lot of other benefits with it, no? Most apps use a toolkit, so once you get the major ones ported (including whatever today's popular Motif clone is, and Tk) you should be set.
