I think even cooler than adding more extensions would be modifying it to use
the XML protocol descriptions from XCB, so we don't have to write code for each
new extension.  (Generating the code from these would be a start, but ideally,
xscope would be able to read the XML files at runtime so we don't have to
recompile to add new extensions.)

Once we get the new modular tree set up to accept new programs (I think this is
supposed to happen as soon as 7.0 is released), it should go under
