You could do -- sounds interesting, although not something I would
personally use.

Have you or anyone considered doing any risk analysis for how
difficult/easy it would be for *any* xlib application to port to xcb,
and what merits/pitfulls there might be in doing so, including any
caveats?  From what limited documentation I've read, it's not clear at

I appreciate that's a boring topic for an MSc, although having said
that, such an analysis is what some lecturers like.  :)
