Why didn't you release libXext as 1.1, as the version numbering would have
Adding support for GenericEvents in a patchlevel release doesn't make sense,
especially considering the version number was already on 18.104.22.168 and you
bumped it back.
Also, git has this nice feature called branching, so if you desperately needed
a 1.0.5 release, why didn't you just branch off 9884a41dd028 and cherry-pick
the fixes over?
