   While it probably wouldn't get much use in XCB, it would still
   prove useful for server support and protocol decoding.

thanks for the explanation.  i will take a whack at writing
double-buffer.xml (for exercising myself and my programs, aka
playing) and will post it for your consideration at some point.

so, what is the recommended way at the protocol-level (assuming
no C libraries involvement) of doing double buffering, currently?
(is this the correct place to ask that question?  if not, where?)
