+The Python X Library is intended to be a fully functional X client

+This is possible to do since X client programs communicate with the X
+server via the X protocol. The communication takes place over TCP/IP,
+Unix sockets, DECnet or any other streaming network protocol. The C
+Xlib is merely an interface to this protocol, providing functions
+suitable for a C environment.
+Python3 is an optional dependency and python3-six is required if built
+with python3 support.
+setuptools-scm is only required as a build dependency and can be
+skipped if you would rather have it automatically grabbed from
+pypi.python.org during the build process.
