I don't recall exactly what Keithp thought was happening.  That said, I'm
really uncomfortable with putting this kind of policy in core XCB, which is
supposed to be all about mechanism.  I guess what I'd recommend is putting a
routine in aux which is a persistent-attempt-to-open built on top of XCB core. 

Among other things, I think the security implications of auto-retry are a bit
interesting.  I can't offhand see where this breaks security in obvious ways,
but I can imagine attempts to spoof an X server being aided and abetted...
