Bug#776178: ITP: python-xcffib -- A drop in replacement for xpyb

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Tycho Andersen <tycho@tycho.ws>

* Package name    : python-xcffib
  Version         : 0.1.10
  Upstream Author : Tycho Andersen <tycho@tycho.ws>
* URL             : https://github.com/tych0/xcffib
* License         : Apache-2.0
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : A drop in replacement for xpyb

 xcffib is intended to be a (mostly) drop-in replacement for xpyb. xpyb has an
 inactive upstream, several memory leaks, is python2 only and doesn't have pypy
 support. xcffib is a binding which uses cffi, which mitigates some of the
 issues described above. xcffib also builds bindings for 27 of the 29 (xprint
 and xkb are missing) X extensions in 1.10.

 xcffib is also used as a dependency for Qtile 0.9.0, which has an RFP as bug
