X11 events recorder and player

Xnee receives X11 protocol data e.g. XEvents from an X server and prints them to a file or stdout. By recording events such as MapNotify, the replaying of events can be synchronized. This is not only useful but essential. We cannot replay or regenerate keyboard-events to a window before it’s ready to “receive” events. By recording events and requests synchronization can be implemented. Xnee can also distribute events both when recording and replaying to other displays.
