We've had it in F-13/rawhide since February 16. Except for the wacom
hotplugging issue (included in this pull) we haven't had a lot of glitches.
Feedback so far war positive and being able to tell bug reporters that they
don't have to mangle fdi files is a charm.

There is one patch left to strip the excessive quotes from the device names.
Other than that, I'd say go for it. CC-ing Dan for his comment - his
InputClass features are the main chunk of this after all.
