Having let this gel for a bit, and having received feedback from Ian,
we've re-done the split with the current repo to incorporate additional
recent commits, and we want to make this split permanent now.  I added
the appropriate update hooks in the new repos to update CIA and send
commit mails, and Jamey added an update hook in the old monolithic xcb
repo to prevent commits there.  Please use the new repos for new commits.

We still need to fix this.
