I'd really consider it a lot more useful to take a look and see what it
would take to shoehorn support for xf86-input-evdev into xgl, however I
have not really played with xgl enough to know how big of a job this
would really be.

(Obviously, without the hw/xfree86/common/XF86Input stuff it won't
exactly be trivial, however given that the whole of input handling is
going to get some changes, and that kdrive would like evdev support as
well, putting some extra effort into things sometime here would make

In that case, it would really be nice if we could figure out something
which won't break configs some more when things finally get shifted
