It worked for me.  This should probably go in a man page or something, 
given that the XF86 documentation says to make sure you call a bus 
mouse a bus mouse, and a PS/2 mouse a PS/2.

On the other hand, maybe we need a unified /dev/mouse driver so that 
things like X don't need to care what kind of mouse it is.

I know, if I want it, write it myself...
