Hmm. Events "have" to be 32-bytes or Xlib won't be able to deal with
them. Moving beyond that will take quite a bit of work on the client
side. I think it's easy in the server though, unless you're talking
input events.

Haing some idea of the scope of this work would be helpful; we're
certainly not having fun with fixed size events these days.
