The fundamental dilemma I'm having is the rift between an enum name that
is descriptive when reading the XML ("MayBeNone" vs "AnyValue" or
"Untyped") and an enum name that doesn't look ugly once libxcb is done

On the basis that generated bindings are (hopefully) used a lot more
often than the .xml files are read by humans, I'm starting to lean
toward "Untyped".

In the hope that I'm missing something obvious that will make both the
xml and the generated bindings beautiful, I'm going to ask again: Can
anyone think of a better name? Please?
