The Xinput and XKB protocol descriptions use new constructs that are
not supported by libxcb yet.

This year, we had a GSoC project to implement those new constructs in
libxcb. It just needs a little bit of review and testing. If you would
like to help, please check out the gsoc2010 branches of the
repositories at http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~chr and let us know how
it works for you.
