it's a daemon very largely because much of the code already
existed in daemon form, from another project of mine.  it also
makes it much more flexible -- adding the rotation support was
trivial, for instance.  and i was able to include primitive (don't
disconnect it!) support for USB keyboards (since my XO has a
hardwired mini-usb keyboard in place of the standard one).  but
your point is a good one.  i just don't know how easy it would be
to to combine state from two drivers -- the mouse and keyboard
data travel pretty different paths, AFAICT.
