Much of the old Xlib documentation was paid for by the Open Group or its
predecessors.  No one's paid to write new doc in ~10 years or so.

For many of the extensions, the API is a straightforward mapping to the
protocol, and the protocol documentation attempts to be sufficiently
comprehensive.  If it's not, please let us know!
