* Save caller info so that protocol errors give useful tracebacks (use
  Carp::longmess?)

* Use (Self|Auto)Loader to reduce startup time; would require major
  restructuring

* Documentation needs more examples, better explanations. Borrow text
  from official protocol spec?

* Real test suite

Porting:
	64-bit architectures?
	avoid '/' as path separator; use File::something?

Extensions:
	Traditional:
	MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
	MIT-SHM
	MIT-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD
	DOUBLE-BUFFER
	Multi-Buffering
	SYNC
	XTEST

	XFree86:	
	XFree86-Bigfont
        XFree86-DGA
        XFree86-DRI
        XFree86-VidModeExtension

	Other small:
	Extended-Visual-Information
	FontCache
	RECORD
	SECURITY
	TOG-CUP
	XC-APPGROUP

	Larger projects:
	Display Postscript?
	GLX / SGI-GLX (OpenGL)
	LBX
        X3D-PEX
	XInputExtension
	XKEYBOARD
	XVideo

Authentication protocols:
	XDM-something
	SUN-DES-1
	MIT-KERBEROS-5

Other modules:
	X11::Xlib -- XS to libX11.a
		Ken Fox has done this as part of X11-Motif, calling it
		X11::Lib.
	X11::Display, X11::Window, X11::GC, etc -- more OO, more
		intuitive interace, could be on top of Xlib
		(was in progress, now abandoned)

Long-term goals:
	Widget library
	Perl window manager:
		See PerlWM, http://www.miranda.org/~jkominek/perlwm/
		also perlwm, http://perlwm.sourceforge.net/
