Remember, an explicit goal of the XCB project is that the
XML protocol descriptions and language bindings have names
as close as feasible to those in the protocol specification
document.  I haven't looked at the GL documents, so I don't
know what the right answer is there.  But we're happy to
change the C code generator as needed to make the generated
C names match the protocol spec more closely if that
