there was some discussion about documenting the protocol via the xml
All of X is documented already in the description of the core protocol
and its extension descriptions. E.g.
It's just the format that is very inaccessible. If, somehow, these
descriptions could get a little extra markup , it would be
possible to merge the names from xcb to the fitting description.
Now the extensions have been written by different persons in very
different times, so they lack a uniform format. Maybe it would be
nice to convert all the protocol descriptions into a uniform format
(and adding that little bit of extra markup).
This has the advantage of a single canonical copy of the
documentation. It would also leave the protocol description
What do you think?
 something like "this is a request", "this is an error", etc.
basically a tag for each possible xml-node
(xidtype, request, etc.)
