You should be taking the libX11 "stable" branch. If that doesn't have
the fixes you need, they should be cherry-picked from master. I guess
this is technically Keithp's job if he's libX11 maintainer?

XCB 0.9 is functionally complete as far as I remember, but Bugzilla
remembers better than I do. (Which I guess makes me thoroughly
pathetic.) However, the functions currently marked deprecated will be
removed before the 1.0 release, and the master branch of libX11 still
uses some of those, so both will have to upgrade simultaneously. This
plus some other Xlib-specific bugs are blocking an Xlib/XCB preview

We have a tracker bug for that:
But the big thing we're waiting for is testing from a wider audience.
... So maybe I should be encouraging you to ship Xlib/XCB and the 0.9
release of XCB in Gentoo for a while?

Ah, the price of innovation. We've missed two revs of RENDER? Somebody
certainly should update the protocol descriptions: I've filed bug #7125
to track that. Anything else we're behind on? Please file a bug for each
extension that we need to update.
