My Cunning Plan is to eventually make those part of the enum itself. If
the type is known, an equivalent to (most of) xcb/util/aux can be
automatically generated, even for languages where you want to keep
ATOMs, PIXMAPs, and CARD32s distinct.

First, I want to get all the extensions annotated with enum/mask.
