An "enum" for Python 3
An unexpected perf feature
LWN.net Weekly Edition for May 16, 2013
A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Ha-ha, that was fun. Either you have done that on purpose, or you're testing that on a server back from 2005. :-) You can check `xdpyinfo -ext RENDER` too, it's supported since about 2003.
Xrandr is just a tool to request that information. Xdpyinfo is another one. X-server knows about subpixels and uses them for a loooong time.
> Try that trick with Xrandr on legacy NVidia drivers (hint: it doesn't work).
Why do you think it won't work? Hah! Try Wayland with legacy NVidia driver (hint: it doesn't work)!
> See "enum transform" and various related events and requests
Have you seen that yourself? It's just display rotation, similar to xrandr, not the surface rotation done by compositor.
Bad NIH, good NIH

In X world extensions are part of the X11 protocol. For example this particular extension is part of X11R6.9, you can see that in its URL.
