I'm currently spending time looking at XI2 now, actually. I've managed to 
get pointers working, including button label mapping and slave device 
switching on the master device. I'm not sure how we will expose multi-device 
support in our API yet though. I'll have to see about how to re-add tablet 
support with the new API (it actually looks like it might be pretty easy 
compared to what we do now).

Keyboard events are the next big hurdle, as I need to figure out what to do 
about input methods (XIM is based on XKeyEvent, as well as some of our own 
input method APIs).

And of course I would love to see multi-touch support as well, so that I 
could add support for that to Qt on X11 (since we have it on Windows, Mac, 
and Symbian). But we all know that that's a bigger discussion/job ;)
