How about leaving xcb_ge_event_t alone, mark it deprecated in the docs,
and adding an xcb_genericevent_event_t (possibly even via the xml, as
originally proposed) that has the correct name for the extension field?

Yeah, it's clutter, but it's just a struct definition so it's not like
it bloats the output binaries.
