The way I did it for the GLX protocol code in Mesa is to make a
glFoo_compsize function for each GL function that has a variable sized
array as input. Often these functions can be shared (e.g., the function
for glTexParameteriv and glTexParameterfv are the same).
You have to read the docs to figure out that, for example, passing
GL_TEXTURE_BASE_LEVEL to glTexParameteriv means there's 1 value but
passing GL_TEXTURE_BORDER_COLOR means there are 4 values. I implemented
that in Mesa (many years before the current Khronos XML existed) by
having additional decorations in my XML. Each enum specifies which
functions can use it and how many values it carries.
The Khronos XML specifies which enums can be passed to which functions
(via <group>), but it doesn't look like it has any information about how
much data goes along with it. :(
