xtrans is a library of code that is shared (but is *not* a shared library)
among various X packages to handle network protocol transport in a modular
fashion, allowing a single place to add new transport types.  It is used
by the X server, libX11, libICE, the X font server, and related components.

This release features a lot of cleanups, both from manual inspection and
from automated static code analysis, along with a couple bug fixes and
various documentation & build configuration improvments.
