Yeah, I don't see any reason to continue to support user-level device
drivers when few (any?) systems need them any more. If you want hot-plug,
then you get to create a reasonable input system. For really broken
environments, a user-level process could open the device and submit
standard format events through some back-channel.

Hmm. If the X server is responsible for building a name, then we have the
situation where an app adds a device and then has to guess what name it
has. Is there some other way of identifying the device?
I guess there's no idea solution.
