[Mesa-dev] XCB-only GLX protocol?

I'm starting to work on GLX_ARB_create_context.  This extension and the 
layered GLX_ARB_create_context_profile extension add some GLX protocol. 
  Is there any reason to keep supporting non-XCB protocol?  Are there 
any platforms that can't / don't use XCB for X protocol?

I'm not planning to gut any non-XCB code yet, but that would happen 
eventually.  I just don't want to implement all of the protocol twice. 
That seems like an unnecessary hassle.
