Integration of libpointing with Xorg

While libpointing does do mouse input handling, I'm interested only in the
pointer acceleration transfer function capabilities. I really like the
Windows mouse acceleration curve, and am interested in modifying Xorg so I
can still have the same mouse behavior feel as Windows.
I realize Xorg already has some extensive acceleration functionality, but
I'm just so used to the Windows feel it would make it easier for me to
switch to *nix if I could keep that (and I would really like to switch :)
