I'd like to see something like this for xcb/util/atom, too. Without it,
we can't add the sane/obvious asynchronous interface: xcb_atom_prefetch.

I tried writing a generic connection-private helper for xcb/util that
could be used by xcb/util/atom, xcb/util/render, cairo, etc, but I got
bogged down in the locking needed to make it thread safe.
