libXCB, by design, does not include helper functions. libXCB is a very
thin wrapper around the protocol itself.

That said, xcb/util has the beginnings of some event helpers.
xcb_event.h (from xcb/util/event) doesn't look like it contains the
function you want, but it would be a good place to add that sort of

Patches welcome!
