I think that under all of these proposals, the reply functions all have
identical prototypes (aside from name inequality on the Cookie types);
it's just not clear whether they'll be two-argument or three-argument

If you're talking about your cookie-queueing code, if your method isn't
good then neither is mine in xcb_reply. So I hope your method is good.
