We'll dig you up a mentor, so you really don't have to.
Hopefully we can talk Peter into dealing with the hard part
of it, i.e. the input side, and any of us can help mentor
the XCB part.  I don't think you need to know any XCB
internals; just be able to write protocol descriptions in it
and build libraries atop it as far as I can tell.

Not at all!  Thanks much for your interest.
