Yes, thats a good summary.

They are not exactly a separate issue. My point was that neither myself nor 
Dan made a proper job on eliminating XCB-related assertions from Xorg 
libraries (I am not talking about external applications). My own personal 
opinion is that the Xorg team suggestion to use XCB with Xorg-7.2 is a bit 
irresponsible in this situation.

If the only problem were external applications, I would not oppose XCB 
inclusion that much.
