Cool. Might be worth grabbing one and giving it a try, then. I'll
probably go ahead and do that and let people know what I find out.

4.x is only contingently of interest to me, right now. It would be a
bigger deal if I could get DRI support---but I don't know of anyone
working on that, and haven't had time to even look at it myself.
If you could dig up the 3.x config, or the tablet-related parts thereof,
that'd be handy. (You have to enable the XIE module, first, correct?
The config docs seemed a little murky on that point when I read them...)
