I've gone ahead and pushed this patch since it works and doesn't break
anything, but I should have mentioned when sending it that I did so
mostly for comments on whether there was any information xdpyinfo
could print about Composite other than just the version number the
server supports.

When thinking about this, I thought that it might be interesting for
debugging if programs like xwininfo could query & print redirection
status for windows, and possibly pixmap ids for windows that have
had NameWindowPixmap called on them, but I don't see a way to query
those in the current protocol.
