yeah, there's nothing that prevents us (well.. copyright might be 
something) to have one single consolidated module for input that all 
compositors could dlopen it. At the moment we're not sharing yet because 
it simply doesn't have much, but I'd say once it grows up and some nice 
features get added there, then clutter, qt, efl, etc will want to 
benefit from it.
