Well, extensions are extensions. It is theoretically possible that
somebody might write an "Allow Large Error" extension in the future,
much like the recently added "Generic Event Extension" extension that
allows larger events than were previously allowed. It doesn't seem
likely, however.

For now, all X errors (including extensions for the foreseeable future)
fit into an xcb_generic_error_t.
