Well, can you explain more details how it works?
right now all xinput scripts such as scim, uim etc etc is
put under /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d and symlinks for
alternatives as well. are you suggesting to just replace
/etc/X11/xinit/xinit.d/default to /etc/X11/xinit/xinputrc?
i.e. alternatives --install /etc/X11/xinit/xinputrc
xinput-default /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim 81?

Ah, you're right I hadn't thought it through clearly enough.
So we need to keep "/etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/" as you say,
but I still think it is a good idea to move "/etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default" to "/etc/X11/xinit/xinputrc".

Sounds good - then where should be xinput scripts put onto?

So then maybe it is better to just keep everything in "xinput.d/" or rename it to "xinputrc.d/"?
