Hi fellow.

I'm working on the port of the xf86-input-evdev to the brand new 
x-input-evdev. The goal of x-input-evdev is to be free of xfree86 DDX. 
Thus, it will work with X, Xglx, Xegl, and others. This task seems to be 
not difficulty. Like the xf86-input-evdev, x-input-evdev is a shared 
library. It is already working with Xglx and Xegl.

Jumping ahead, I think the future directions are to build some alike 
Advanced Input Layer, which could be a well defined API for X and 
external applications, like sdl lib.

Coming back to reality... Now, I wish to know where is the best place to 
push the x-input-evdev on xorg CVS tree? Is it fit in "xorg/lib"?

Please, if you objects with anything, tell me. Thanks!
