On the contrary, using bare Xlib you would be hard pressed to write
even a trivial application within a month unless you're willing to
give up a lot of features which many people would take for granted
(e.g. configuration, support for multiple locales, interoperability
with other applications, etc).
As with many things, being different is automatically a loss, so you
have to do better on the other aspects just to break even.
