[Xcb] Foreign file descriptors

I'm using xlib alot, and haven't tried xcb yet because that would be too many
variables to fix at once.

To monitor external file descriptors for things like receiving characters on
a serial port, xlib doesn't seem to have any facility for that, so your application
remains stuck in XNextEvent().

Does xcb have a way around this?
