No. It's also totally buggy...

I think so, if we're going to use gdk-pixbuf-xlib I think we need to
start over on it, more or less - that is, take current gdk-pixbuf and
gdkrgb, and port them back to Xlib. The current gdk-pixbuf-xlib
doesn't have any of the hundreds of bugfixes that have gone in to
gdk-pixbuf itself.
