Right I know that, what I'm asking is... if I have the string, how do I
generate the appropriate connection. I believe in xlib you can do dpy=
Or something like that, I don't have any code in front of me and I don't know
xlib that well so I may be lying. Is this sort of thing outside of the scope
of XCB or am I blind (very distinct possibility ;)).
