Thanks for pointing this out to me :) I'll keep this in mind for next time.

I'm quite committed to xcb and would like to extend my help here beyond
the windows port. I intend to look closer at segments that I can contribute
to however if anyone here has ideas how I can take my current work forward
or other segments that I could look into please let me know.

Thanks yet again for including my code in the main trunk :)

software in this pool on any device remotely.With eBrainPool, Software and
Computing are truly shared resources.
