Bug#603116: RFP: libx11-xcb-perl -- perl bindings for libxcb

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libx11-xcb-perl
  Version         : 0.01_006 (not really released yet)
  Upstream Author : Michael Stapelberg <michael+xcb@stapelberg.de>
* URL or Web page : http://search.cpan.org/~mstplbg/X11-XCB-0.01_006/lib/X11/XCB.pm.in
* License         : Artistic
  Description     : perl bindings for libxcb

These bindings wrap libxcb (a C library to speak with X11, in many
cases better than Xlib in many aspects) and provide a nice object
oriented interface to its methods (using Moose).

Please note that its aim is NOT to provide yet another toolkit for
creating graphical applications. It is a low-level method of
communicating with X11. Use cases include testcases for all kinds of
X11 applications, implementing really simple applications which do not
require an graphical toolkit (such as GTK, QT, etc.) or command-line
utilities which communicate with X11.
