Ah, *this* argument I think I can understand. You're just worried that
people won't be able to tell the difference between an xcb_window_t and
an xcb_visualid_t, in terms of how to get one?

I think you're arguing that xcb_window_new was useful as documentation.
I suspect we should address your concern with *actual* documentation.
I'd welcome patches for that.
