I'm rewriting 's CLX backend renderer to always use XRender extension. I've already drafted a core abstraction.

@jackdaniel
Great news!
BTW, how close does it get us to smooth animations? Do you think double-buffering will still be needed?

@wwolf Thanks!

Double buffering will be part of the package (of this change). I've already rewritten pixmap abstraction to enable that - that change is merged in master. Then animations will be just a matter of putting things together by the programmer (until we decide on some public API for convenience).
