in reply to That rewrite feeling...

Yes, I must admit I have, at times, felt the weird urge to reinvent Xlib (client-side X11 protocol) as a lightweight, pure Perl module (I know that there's X11::Protocol, but I'm dreaming of something significantly leaner...).

But up to now, I've managed to keep the urge under control... ;)
