Those aren't in libxcb, but the still-under-development xcb-utils helper
libraries.  /usr/lib/libxcb-util.so has several other xcb_atom_* functions
still, but I don't see any property_handler functions.   The archives of this
list should have the discussion and review of the changes made (late last year
or early this year if I remember correctly).
