Thanks, that explains. Basically I just wanted to create an xlib pixmap
to be used then with clutter :-)

clutter_x11_texture_pixmap_new_with_pixmap (pixmap) 

(or its python/gi equivalent) requires an X Pixmap. Trying to create a
gdk.Pixmap does not help as the xlib.Pixmap is expected. So writing a
wrapper might be the only solution in my case.
