It seems that I was under the wrong impression on the hole thing.

Some of the files generated from these scripts are used in/by xserver.
Although they are imported/tracked into version control of the latter in
order to prevent the xserver build directly diving into mesa source tree.

The XORG_GLAPI_OUTPUTS files on the other hand, are the ones that were
removed from xserver with commit be6680967a4(glx: convert to direct GL
dispatch (v2)). Unfortunatelly they only cover ~20 lines of makefile
rules, thus none of the python scripts can be removed/simplified.

Apologies if I mislead anyone.
