NetBSD tinman 4.99.8 NetBSD 4.99.8 (TINMAN-$Revision: 1.01 $) #1: Fri Jan 19 21:10:11 GMT 2007  root@:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/TINMAN i386
I would like to see an equivalent of joy(4) for USB joy-
sticks or joypads.  joy(4) is approachable for a novice
programmer but uhid(4) is quite daunting by comparison.  A
ujoy(4) would make it easier for USB joystick support to be
included both in new programs and for existing programs that
already support joy(4).  This in turn contributes in a small
way to the portability of programs (i.e. they can run on
platforms that have USB, but lack a PC gameport).
