I thought there was quite a lot of interest in having a single request 
and giving serial==0 a special meaning. I certainly would be in favor of it.

If you don't do that, all that is going to happen is libraries will do 
it themselves, so they don't have to write two versions of every wrapper 
function that deal with serials. Though I think it likely everybody will 
choose the value of zero as "do the request that does not take a serial" 
it would probably be a lot better to force this, while at the same time 
making the wayland api simpler.
