No, it's a fair shout.  Ultimately we definitely want all of this to
be in a separate library.  I worry that introducing a library now when
we don't know what either the consumers really want or the producer
can give us would be a massive pain though, especially for things like
bisect.  I'd be much happier just dropping it in the source tree now,
being careful to keep it as independent as possible, and then
gradually evolve it to be a separate library that things like X can

This also gets really hairy when touch comes into the mix, so for
instance we'd need to deal with the interactions between touch events
and tap-to-click etc ...
