Comment(by gdalziel):

 My justification for calling it highly experimental, apart from the fact
 it crashes, is due in part to that fact that even Mesa doesn't use it by
 default. We also don't enable it by default for Mesa either. I've seen
 many bug reports from all over the place showing crashes with Mesa enabled
 with XCB, and that's with a package in which XCB isn't "experimental".
 I don't have a problem leaving it in the command explanations for people
 that want to try it, but I do have a problem with recommending the usage
 of it.
