I searched around a bit.
Did I get it right, that mpx changed the entire input part of X and
therefor XEvIE didn't work anymore and was removed. mpx does not
provide anything like input redirection, so bringing back XEvIE based
on the new input logic mpx brings would not result in implementing the
same feature twice, right?
If this is the case I will try to bring XEvIE back.
