[Xcb] RFC: Altenum updates for xcb/proto

I have finished my initial work on the 'altenum' tag. Please find the
series at:
or pull from
  git://anongit.freedesktop.org/~peterh/xcbproto-enum master

Note that this branch has been updated and rebased since its last mention here.

The only thing that still bugs me is the name of "MayBeNone/None".
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to come up with a name that sucks
less. I thought about "Or/None", but "or" is a reserved word in many

The other thing I can think of is a cornucopia of enums, all of which
contain only 'None', for each specific instance. I like that option
even less.

Suggestions for a better name are particularly welcome.

Comments/suggestions/criticisms/flames about any of this set are also
welcome. Shortlog and diffstat appended.
