At minimum, we should ship pre-xsltproc-ed versions of all
the XCB headers. I personally have no problem with
requiring XCB developers to have specific build tools, but I
think we shouldn't require anything too magic of folks who
just want to build and install it.
The problem is that SCMSs generally don't like to have stuff
in them that is "stored but not tracked". Does GIT have
something like this?

Nah. Your philosophy was not shared by many early UNIX
folks. I have always been an "header files shouldn't
include other header files" type myself, but the world has
decided to disagree with me on this one, so I just go
along. :-) You will note, though, that your way leads to the
scary valley of "wrapping header files in an ifdef to ensure
that they can harmlessly be included twice".

The important part is that you fixed it. Don't worry! Be
Thanks hugely, Jeremy, for the report!
