libXcomposite provides an X Window System client interface to the Composite
extension to the X protocol.
The Composite extension allows clients called compositing managers to control
the final drawing of the screen.  Rendering is done into an off-screen buffer.
This package contains the development headers for the library found in
libxcomposite1.  Non-developers likely have little use for this package.
