updated python2-xcffib to 0.1.8 and qtile to depend on it

python2-xcffib>=0.1.6 should be changed to 0.1.8, because latest git commit wont work with 0.1.6 version anymore.

Until this is fixed, building qtile is possible by changing the source line in PKGBUILD so it will use an old commit:

your connection is clearly fucked up. be sure to scream loudly at your school's admins! ;-)

I just attempted the same with qtile-python3-git, and I'm getting the same error. I'm 90% sure it's the network that I'm on.
So I'll run my Arch-USB on a different machine/network, and it should work
