I had the feeling that my uneasiness with git was likely the root of t he
problem, but I just went and did what I thought was right: I took the url: line
from inputproto/.git/config, and used that value to craft this command line
(with included results):

git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/proto/inputproto master
- From git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/proto/inputproto
 * branch            master     -> FETCH_HEAD
Already up-to-date.

So, is this wrong?  I still can't grep out any devicePropertyNotifyEvent.  Oh,
wait ... I've noticed something a bit odd ... the thing referenced in the
Xi/xiproperty.c is devicePropertyNotifyEvent (note lower case leading letter
'd') and in proto/inputproto, it has one named DevicePropertyNotifyEvent (note
now the upper case leading 'D' .... is that deliberate?
