No, much simpler. I got the idea (and much of the code) from the synaptics
driver: it tries each /dev/input/eventX until one is found whose driver
name begins with "acecad". It's a little too braindead at the moment, but I
don't know if it's possible to just ask the kernel "tell me about the
eventX handled by the usb_acecad module".

Did it? gmail didn't thread the things correctly, maybe because of the
subject change, but they appear correctly threaded through the gmane
interface --except for the last two messages which I had to send in a
second batch ...
