I think these should go in their own file (xorg.applewmproto) and not
in xorg.xorgproto. (Unless applewmproto isn't a separate thing and the
applewmproto files can be expected to always come with xorgproto;
maybe that's the case. But if it's not, putting them here will cause
native xorgproto to be dropped anytime they aren't found, and then you
effectively won't be able to use native X.)

also isn't this part of libAppleWM and not applewmproto? And if
applewmproto comes with native X, shouldn't a matching libAppleWM also
come with?
