I have ported the relevant bits (for me) of libXcursor to an xcb-only
library: http://code.stapelberg.de/git/util-cursor/

With a simple test program, I can load Xcursor cursors on my root
window, so it should be ready to be used in window managers like i3 and
awesome (untested yet).

I would love to hear some comments about this, both from a project point
of view (e.g. where does it fit into the big picture, is “util-cursor” a
good name, did I do any obvious autotools mistakes, etc.) and from a
code review point of view.

Also it would be cool if you could test it and see if it works with your
favorite cursor theme, in case you use any ;-):

git clone git://code.stapelberg.de/util-cursor
cd util-cursor
git submodule update --init
sudo make install

Thanks for your feedback!

Best regards,
