Packaging auto-generated stuff *is* bad and useless.

I'll add:
* They depends on the version of xcb-proto installed on the dist
  tarball builder which might be corrupted, not up-to-date,
  <insert any bad thing>
  (that's the bad point)
* They cannot be used anyway since configure will yell:
  checking for XCBPROTO... configure: error: Package requirements (xcb-proto >= 1.1) were not met:

  No package 'xcb-proto' found
  (that's the useless point)

So, I guess no one ever used them, and everybody re-generates
them anyway by installing xcb-proto.
