[Xcb] Getting a Display handle from an xcb_connection_t

Sadly, I cannot recall any way you can get the Xlib Display
state right with the existing API, no.  Probably such a
thing is achievable if you're careful, but non-trivial;
you'd have to go through all the Display fields and make
sure they matched the XCB connection's view.

Anyone else remember if we had some clever trick for this?
