our current long-term approach is to get support for input devices into the
kernel and then let evdev deal with it automagically*. The times when X needed
a separate driver for each device are gone and the sooner we forget about it,
the happier we'll be.


* doesn't work with all devices yet, but evdev is moving fast and is easy
enough to hack on.

evdev used to be easier, but it is not accepting the device identification
by name anymore. One has to use /dev/input/by-id/ or /dev/input/by-path.
And what about bluetooth devices? Would you know where can I get
its identification?
