No, you cannot.  However, XCB, its protocol descriptions, and its
binding generator all use a non-copyleft license, namely the MIT
license.  XCB needs to link with all sorts of different applications,
either directly or via Xlib/XCB, and we want to replace Xlib which
people may use under a non-copyleft license, so we use a non-copyleft

(If we *did* want a copyleft license, we'd still just use the same
license for both documentation and code; highly recommended to avoid the
compatibility problem and various other problems.)
