We've built up a good deal of change that needs testing before we call this
release baked, so here's a first release candidate snapshot for Xlib 1.6.

There's a good number of minor bugfixes and some more serious (though
uncommonly hit) ones.

Packagers may need to update for the new path to Xcms.txt & changes to
the set of included locale files.

Support for some unused transports and platforms has been dropped, but
hopefully no one will be able to notice the lack of DECnet or CRAY UNICOS

Try it out, report bugs, and let us know what needs to be fixed before the
1.6 release.
