hmm, I never replied to this and now it's past the May 3rd deadline anyway.
I'm not sure about the tablet weston patches. tablet support is a
rather specialised use-case that requires a few extra things to be really
useful (e.g. the correct tablet-to-screen mapping, ability to calibrate,
etc). And the tablet pad support isn't in yet either. So I don't think
including tablet support in weston at this point is a good idea, and I'm not
sure about the long-term use of it - unless libweston starts being
commonplace and we have multiple compositors that need it.
