On a procedural level, one thing we've discussed in the past is whether
we shouldn't just merge the input driver repositories back into the X
server. That would let us more easily mutate the API/ABI as needed to
resolve issues like this.

Eric and I were chatting about this as his work on Glamor, along with
Dave's work on xf86-video-modesetting may shortly provide
device-independent output that could be merged into the X server to
reduce the cost of making changes across the system.
