PLEASE elaborate on the filthy things you've made it do!

- Unit/Integration test X11 tools inside docker Xephyr sessions during CI

- Transplant magnet links from ThePirateBay into a bittorrent client

- Type stuff into virtual machines rather than install guest additions

- Import data into remote desktop sessions for otherwise internet-isolated+Copypaste disabled remote hosts, complete with integrity checking powershell scripts which were also imported into the environment that were used to self-integrity check prior to integrity checking other files.

The use of xdotool is probably an antipattern in a perfect world, but that doesn't mean that it's not damn handy from time to time.
