Thats not correct. My patch don't make wacom working without the wacom
packages. You need them for X furthermore. There is no way around the wacom
packages on the Wacom devices/Tablets. And you also need setserial to setup
the ttyS* devices correctly. The only thing you can do now is e.g.:
* identify TabletPCs
* setup the (correct) ttyS* device automatically
* on system.formfactor.subtype=tabletPC depending actions:
- identify TabletPCs
- show a virtual Keybord
- install packages dependig on this info (SUSE do this already)
