there's just crap that copy Xlib bad protocol hiding.
The code is interesting as documentation, specially for people comming

xcb-util-wm has been removed.
So we should talk about xcb-util-icccm.

It's rather sure that keysyms will grow in the near feature, specially
because Arnaud is working on that AFAIK.
