They are old bits, and I actually used them when I started doing 
experiments on xcb. It took me a week to realize this wasn't the current 
repository :)

FWIW, converting between the old Xlib-inspired naming convention and the 
current one is not impossible, but it's damn hard and I lost a lot of 
time figuring out how to read the xcb tutorial.

+1 from me to remove it, just so that others don't fall into the same trap.
