i've been trying to write a multi-user window manager, sort of a x2x or
synergy in reverse, but i cannot get off the ground: i am unable to find
any means to detect which input source an input event was
my goal is to be able to seperate the different input sources from one
another. so i could have, for example, two mice, each with their own
distinct cursor. i'm willing to implement a crude hack to share a
CorePointer between two "fake" cursors (the "window manager"), but I have
been unable to find any means to differentiate input between the two mice.
if anyone has suggestions for how I can go about finding what physical
device an input event (Motion, keyboard, or otherwise) was generated from,
i would be very much oblidged.
