I haven't had a chance to review your most recent patch, but I'm sure
it's fine. Please do commit. In general don't worry too much about
getting my permission before a commit, especially if I'm slow about

I was planning on asking that soon. Xlib has no deprecation warnings, so
we can ignore it. I imagine the Cairo XCB backend has bitrotted pretty
badly anyway so if we kill a few more functions the situation doesn't
really get worse.
So folks, you get probably a week to fix any deprecation warnings in
your XCB-using code before we finally kill off those functions. I might
reconsider given good cause, but really I expect nobody will care.

That's fine with me.
Also, Ian, when I assigned that bug to you I hadn't realized that you'd
already committed all the deprecation fixes you'd shown me previously.
My mistake. :-)

I think Vincent was asking whether the comments should be made to point
to the right files :-) but just removing the filename comments would be
