I would strongly suggest forking the codebase at this point.
This can be done incrementally; you can replace Xlib calls
one or more at a time and still retain a working library.
But at the end of the day, I'm about getting a working
XCB-based library and deprecating the Xlib one.

Of course, I may be biased. :-)

There's a Git tree around here somewhere with my
partly-finished port of x11perf.  Not a library, but still
something that might be useful.  I doubt it, though; this
work is mostly tedium.
