[Xcb] State of XInputExtension

Speaking just for myself, I'm quite comfortable at this point with just
enabling XINPUT and letting the chips fall where they may. The work seems
at first glance to be excellently and professionally done. Enabling the
changes almost certainly wouldn't leave things any worse than they are now
with regard to XINPUT, and I am skeptical that there are breaking changes
to the rest of XCB. A test suite would be nice, but I doubt anybody has the
time and energy to write one: I know I don't. So I think let's do the "user
testing" thing. But I'm not a maintainer anymore (except maybe of the image
library), so it's definitely not my call...
