Yes.  My plan is to get it to a point where the protocol monitor is
fairly complete and has a reasonable interface, give it a name and do
a first release.  Then I'll have a look at synchronising the XML XCB
definitions with what's upstream.  I actually started playing around
with xproto.xml in mid-2005 with some Perl code.  I picked up the idea
two years later and started again with Python but kept the modified
xproto.xml.  So the definition has diverged a bit with padding fixes,
type definitions for <valueparam>s, etc.  Most of it will be
straightforward to merge.  The tricky bits will be the handful of
<special> tags introduced to handle special cases that are currently
implemented entirely in Python.
