[Xcb] GIT repo split - please test

I'm seeing some brokenness when using gitk.  I don't see any history  
before 2006-02-18 in any of the repositories.  First commit is  
edd249e788906bfb509f49eb8b99c378d48a5a29 (Remove xcl and CVSROOT),  
which is a comment only. If I look in the main repository, this  
commit does not affect any of the repositories, just CVSROOT and  
xcl.  Perhaps an assumption that every commit will affect at least  
one of the currently existing repositories?

 From a quick glance, things look good after 2006-02-18.

(Note: I am still using git 1.2.3.  Do you think upgrading would make  
a difference?)
