 * On construction, set a graceful X error handler that doesn't crash the application and records X errors.
 * On destruction, restore the X error handler to what it was before construction.
 * The SyncAndGetError() method allows to know whether a X error occurred, optionally allows to get the full XErrorEvent,
 * and resets the recorded X error state so that a single X error will be reported only once.
 * Nesting is correctly handled: multiple nested ScopedXErrorHandler's don't interfere with each other's state. However,
 * if SyncAndGetError is not called on the nested ScopedXErrorHandler, then any X errors caused by X calls made while the nested
 * ScopedXErrorHandler was in place may then be caught by the other ScopedXErrorHandler. This is just a result of X being
 * asynchronous and us not doing any implicit syncing: the only method in this class what causes syncing is SyncAndGetError().
 * This class is not thread-safe at all. It is assumed that only one thread is using any ScopedXErrorHandler's. Given that it's
 * not used on Mac, it should be easy to make it thread-safe by using thread-local storage with __thread.
