[Accessibility] Fwd: X11 libraries requested for future LSB spec

I have proposed to the LSB to include libraries libxkbfile and libxkbui
for keyboard ABI specification, and libraries libXcomposite, libXdamage,
and libXfixes for magnification support.  In addition, to uplift libXext
to a level that supports XShape v1.1 for magnification.


I believe it is important for the LSB to specify the ABIs for these
libraries, so that the Linux distributions will include them at the
proper level.


As both AT-SPI and ATs mature on Linux, then the ABIs used will need to
be more strictly defined, so /usr/lib/libcspi.so ABIs and data types
in /usr/include/at-spi-1.0/cspi will need to be formally specified.
