Can you describe the purpose of X_main_loop(),
X_set_pre_xevent_handler(), and X_set_post_xevent_handler() in
XCmdGlue.c? Is that what you are referring to in item 3) above, or is
it something else?

Is RR providing externals API documentation in addition to a tutorial?
Not knowing the purpose and usage of most of these functions is the
main problem for me.
