Cairo is not really good to draw fonts, so you'd use pango.
And then it's not an XCB book, it's become GNOME-XCB book :-)

AFAIK Xft has not been ported to XCB, but that's something I may take a
look in the future.

There's also a lot of little stuff that we miss to build real-world X
application like libxcursor. Thanks to me, we at least have
startup-notification. :-)
