i forgot to also mention that i believe anyone using an XO-1 with
a recent (last couple of months) 2.6.30 kernel, as provided with
an F11-or-SoaS-on-XO-1 release, is already running this driver. 
i haven't heard negative feedback from that group of users -- but
i actually haven't gotten any feedback at all.  so maybe the new
driver isn't an improvement at all.  or you're all using external
mice.  :-)
