This is a fairly significant change in extension semantics, and as such
needs to be reflected throughout the stack, including an update to the
extension minor version so that applications can tell whether this
semantic is present in the X server.

We've got several ways of doing this:

 1) Create a new protocol request with the new semantics.
    Bonus credit for reporting an error if an old client
    uses the new request.
 2) Detect the client version and change semantic for new clients.
 3) Changing the semantic of the existing request.

For the last two, we'll want to change the name of the request, library
interface and server internal bits and then provide aliases for old
libraries and clients.

What I don't want is to have new semantics that are completely invisible
to applications, and which provide nice traps for the unwary developer
when they're reading the code or documentation.

For these last four:
