: That's a quick brain dump of input related things I could think of that are
: repeatedly asked on the list, irc, and bugreports. The information is accurate
: as of git master today and extends to server 1.5 (mostly) and server 1.6.

	Thanks for the explanation. One question, though:

is there a way of using HAL-managed devices in multi-seat X? If yes,
how can I specify which input device belongs to which seat?

	I use static devices in Xorg.conf so far, but I would like
to have it working even after unplugging/replugging the input device.
