This is now supported, though still not in an "obvious" way . It would be
great if you could test that it works using a daily built image.
See  for the boot options to use.
Note that the gtk frontend is currently broken (see #477331), but you should
still be able to test this if you just concentrate on whether the mouse
works on the first dialog that's displayed.
As discussed before, the X configuration side of this is primarily an issue
that you should take up directly with the X.Org developers.
 I have some ideas for that though.
