this makes it impossible to switch between them without recompiling

for development and testing it may be usefull to enable both though

one example are fate clients, which if these parts are mutually
exclusive potentially wont compile test both or if they can be
enabled at build time one wouldnt be able to select which to use at
runtime as their names equal

we maybe should introduce in addition to the default https & x11grab
a x11grab_xcb and x11grab_x11 or something like that
