Since you haven't posted your current version, I cannot review it. I
don't want to wast your time with comments on things you have already fixed.

"make check" in xcb/proto is a good start. It doesn't catch mismatched
type errors (eg. you used an "enum" as the field type in a few
locations, which isn't valid. Enums can only be used in enum=, mask=,
altenum=, and altmask=), but it does catch basic syntax errors in the XML.
