As Jamey said, a switch statement would be nicer. And you can probably
be less verbose - if you really want - with a macro.

#define HANDLE_EVENT(type, func) \
  case XCB_#type: func(event); break;

   HANDLE_EVENT(EXPOSE, handle_expose_event)
   HANDLE_EVENT(KEY_PRESS, handle_key_press)

(Not tested, I'm just giving the rough idea here).
