X itself (Xlib, the server, the protocol) has no concept of a "double
click". This is implemented by the various toolkits, and the
mechanisms to set the double-click time are specific to each toolkit.

E.g. GTK+ uses the gtk-double-click-time property of a GtkSettings
object, Qt uses the doubleClickInterval property in the QApplication
object, Xt has XtSetMultiClickTime().
