your outrage is not justified

libdraw is not a drawing backend, xlib is the drawing backend
as far as i can see libdraw hides certain xlib primitives

it does not try to be a general purpose bitmap manipulation api,
but a widget handling lib with font loading, window resizing, etc
with minimal drawing support

the name could have been chosen with more care, but sane names
are usually taken
