Bug Description

Xig (lp:xig) appears to be an unmaintained project, which we experimented with for some time in order to do integration testing with the X Server. This is a bug report for discussing whether or not it would be appropriate to drop support in the codebase for it for now:

Pros of dropping it:
 1. Less combinations of things to build, no need to worry about keeping it in the source tree
 2. We can focus on xorg-gtest, mentally at least

Cons of dropping it:
 1. Xig allows us to do a particular kind of integration testing, that is verifying the calls made from the client to the server, and also throwing events at clients to see how they handle them.
 2. No need to have a third controlling client in order to manipulate the server
 3. We can manipulate server state directly, in ways that aren't possible to do in xorg-gtest (changing the screen size is an example that comes to mind here)
 4. It doesn't do any harm remaining disabled in the source tree.
