Just for curiousity - which distros do actually ship XCB at the moment,
at least as some sort of extra/unofficial package? I couldn't find one
at the moment for my distro (FC6/F7) and I doubt many people (as in:
users of compiz) want to compile XCB and Xlib/XCB manually.
Does anyone of you know when XCB will be included in all major
