[Xcb] Using C99 types instead of custom integral types

I wrote a small XCB program just to try it out.  While I'm generally
happy with the new API, the use of the ancient X typedefs for integral
types such as INT32, CARD32 and BYTE make client code less readable to
anybody except old X hackers.

I'd like to suggest adopting the standard C99 types instead, such as
int8_t, int32_t, etc.

Maybe it's already been considered before, or maybe it's just too
late for such a change.  Just my $0.02.
