Since the release dust is on the server-1.2-branch, you can have all the
fun you want in the master branch now - the randr-1.2 & input-hotplug guys
certainly are.

While the Dtrace bits can be de-#ifdef'ed a bit, the screaming caps macros
unfortunately come from the generated headers, and switching to manually
generated macros may reduce portability to the other OS'es getting dtrace
support (so far MacOS X & FreeBSD).   I suppose if they really bother I
could just have #define lowercasename SCREAMING_CAPS_NAME macros added too.
