What's the status of XCB-GLX now? I've looked through the mailing
list, read the docs I could find, but recent information is scarce.

[1] "Although writing a OpenGL application on X Windows using pure XCB
is not possible...".
The page was updated approx 18 months ago. Is this still accurate?
I've seen code posted here that tries to use pure XCB, but that code
doesn't work. [2]

Are there any recent code examples or projects using XCB-GLX I could
learn from? I've looked at the VLC source, and they're still mixing
XCB/Xlib calls.
