The new syntax added in
is not supported by libxcb yet. That support needs to be added to the
libxcb generators. The Wireshark patch linked adds such support to the
Wireshark dissector generator.

The technical side is likely to be fairly straight-forward (if you like
python). The hard part is figuring out what the generated C API ought to
look like when you're done updating the generator.
