I am still tweaking X11 stuff and noticed that xcb-proto generates
some python files.

Usually I try to always provide libs in 64 bit too. Last time we
talked about this was in November and Joshua said he had build
this some time ago. IMHO it would be great if we would have a
64 bit Python (CSWpython64? CSWpythonx in Sun-terminology?).
The new mGAR should make it fairly easy to add 64 bit.
