fons - i wasn't talking about xrm at all. i was referring to the way
that X encapulsates the X protocol in Xlib, and nobody ever deals with
the protocol itself. The protocol is the true definition of X, but
nobody uses it, and with good reason.

There is a protocol involved in server/client communication. Its
isomorphous to a file format.
