Uhm. Error replies from the server should be explained sufficently, I guess
(the whole deal with "checked vs unchecked errors").

For out of memory errors or I/O errors, the xcb_connection_t goes into an error
state. All function calls with it will fail and xcb_connection_has_error() can
tell you which error occured (there are some defines in xcb.h with a XCB_CONN_

XCB never calls exit().

Would it be too much work for you to create a patch for the tutorial that adds
what you would have wanted to know? It should be available in git at
https://secure.freedesktop.org/cgit/xcb/ and clonable
