Replacement for xpyb and XCB Python bindings

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.
