[Xcb] Docs?

I want to be able to write client programs using xcb, but have found the
documentation "process", or more specifically how to read documentation on
a Request or Event function, to be impossible to wade through.

For example, doxygen, installing the source to get docs, Z language, is all
opaque to me.

I already have xcb on my PC-BSD 10.0.2 system, compile the tutorial
programs with gcc, and they work perfectly! I love it! Now how to get a
description of all the Request and Event functions you might want to use to
write an actual client-side application, and what arguments you need to
supply them with?

For example, if you look at the X Protocol for X11R7.7 descriptions of the
33 Event functions (very general, no argument list, or argument types), I
don't see a correlation between what's listed there and how the calls to
those functions are explicitly put in an xcb-based client program in the
xcb tutorial.

I don't want to be a developer, nor install the source to get to some
simple yet complete documentation on Request and Event functions. I'm also
VERY new to C programming, and don't want to write programs that contain
the functions that are in the tutorial.

Can somebody help me out on this? I hope I don't sound like too much of a
whiner or seem to be deprecating xcb- I think it rocks!
