Yeah, what I was trying to say was more like: there's no reason to
pair the two together, so whatever we do and decide with Wayland here,
libinput can move separately at its own pace. Probably makes sense to
put it in a new group by now, especially if you want to group related
tools with it, give it its own site, etc etc.

What could possibly go wrong? :)

More seriously, that sounds good - please remind me when the release
has happened and you're ready to move and I'll get it migrated.
