[Bug 1901] XkbConfiguration: AccessX event handling (XkbEvents)

It turned out I was wrong here [0], AccessX related events are
generated. I just looked at the wrong place. When I found out what it
was(XkbEvent instead of XEvent), and because I do not really know how
and where to implement it inside an existing xfce-component, I wrote a
daemon[1] which listens to the events and then sends a message to the
notification-daemon using libnotify. (As a proof-of-concept)

Atm, when sticky- or slow-keys are en-/disabled, it will send a notification.

It is very unstable and does not support the notify-action for
feedback due to the way I used the event-loop, but it gives a pretty
good idea about what I mean.

Perhaps we can implement something which gives simmilar feedback for 4.6?
