Thanks for this work. I gave a quick test with the devices I currently
have at home:
- mouse support:
 * rotation works just fine
 * buttons are not handled (silently ignored)
 * wheel events raise a EV_REL not supported
- general pen:
* so far, so good
- airbrush:
* ditto, so far so good
- artpen:
 * don't have it at home, will test it tomorrow at the office

This was for the pro-level Wacom (Intuos Pro and Intuos 4 BT).

For the general consumer line (Bamboo, Bamboo PAD and Huion H610 Pro),
everything works as expected except that event_debug always prints the
tilt_x/y information even if the tool does not support it. The tool
capability debug shows however if the device has the tilt support or
not, so it's just an event_debug bug.

I'll go further in the review now that the preliminary tests have been made.
