Or just use the visibility defines already included in <X11/Xfuncproto.h>
in Xorg 6.9 and later.

It probably never will be applied to Xorg CVS in it's current form,
since it adds a second set of visibility defines, and only works with
the now-frozen monolithic/imake tree, not the current modular/autotools
tree. libX11 is also a very risky place to take away defined symbols,
since there are so many existing applications and so much hackery that
has occured in the past.
