It's a significant improvement in interoperation between XCB
and Xlib: closes a number of outstanding bugs and enables
some new functionality.  It's new work by Jamey and Josh,
based on a suggestion from Keithp.  They're hoping to
release in the next couple of weeks.

We also hope to release the Python-based replacement code
generator in this timeframe.  This is the long-awaited
replacement for the XSLT code generator, which itself was
the long-awaited replacement for the M4 code generator.  I
miss M4. :-)

If you want to try to synchronize with 7.4 that's fine, but
we hadn't really planned to worry about it...
