There's absolutely no question here about what XSync does.  It flushes all 
requests to the server and waits for all such events to be completed.  It 
optionally discards any incoming events from the server that are in the input 
queue.  It's an extremely simple concept, and I'm not really sure how you can 
be confused about it.

Reading what?  The obvious fact that you're dead wrong and won't admit it?

Is there a point to any of this?
