That is true. On the other hand, this code has mostly been laying around
without major changes and without being an annoyance, and it is pretty
possible that the new code will just supersedes it and keep the good
situation intact.

I suggest we can decide what to do about alternate implementation if and
when the need arises, be it because an user has troubles that are fixed by
the Xlib implementation or because someone wants to develop or implement

(As for tests, considering they would need a dummy X11 server, I bet they
are not coming anytime soon.)
