   The XML was designed to allow easy code 
   generation. libxcb uses XSLT to generate code from the XML, but I found 
   it *much* faster to develop using perl and XML::Simple or XML::Twig; 
   others are using python.

   I initially wrote luaxcb (a Lua binding for XCB's xproto) in about three
   days, if that means anything to you.


Yeah, XML is [insert derogatory spew here].
