Integration of libpointing with Xorg

Hello all,

I had several questions:

   1. Does anyone know if there has been an effort to integrate with Xorg?
   2. If not, how would I go about attempting this integration? Libpointing
   basically outputs x and y displacements based on selected transfer
   functions. I would need to find out where Xorg currently handles mouse
   input and sets the cursor position so I could somehow intercept it and
   modify those coordinates.

I would appreciate any pointers in the right directions, such as which
file(s) in the Xorg codebase handlle mouse movement events and actually
move the cursor? Thanks.
