Hmm, if Debian does get its own such auto-config, it needs to have
attention put into laptop and related issues.  For example, There should
always be a second mouse device that is USB if the machine supports
USB... so that USB users can just plug in a mouse in addition to the
built-in mouse (which is usually PS/2 on laptops).

Also, things like being able to select a brand/model of keyboard and
load a correct xmodmap file so that "hot keys" and so on work correctly.
