This brings up something that I've been wondering: what (if anything) is
the long-term plan for input in Weston - and Wayland compositors in

Is Weston going to essentially fold in all the interesting bits from all
the input DDXs to the core (and require this to be duplicated in all
other compositors), or should these conceptually be modules, eventually
crystallising as an input-module ABI compositors could share?

I think I'd like the latter to happen, but what are others thinking
about this (if anything ☺)?
