Correct me if I'm wrong, but so far, except complaining that Python is
a heavy dependency, a PITA to install on $OS or whatever, did we get a
single bug report about the inability to install XCB on any platform?

Because after all, we surely can be nice guys and look for another
solution and/or generator than Python, but if obviously the reason is
not technical but just "I don't want to install Python on my system 
because I dislike it", I'm just going to kill the thread as is, dot.

Seems so, kudos to everyone! ;)
