I think this strongly calls for a management daemon to enumerate
composite devices and player assignments [like logind does for users],
and provide fds, whether as part of a compositor or preferably (IMHO)
coordinating with one.  It would be this daemon a libgamecontroller
would talk to, to register player input with "games".
