It should be easy enough to write an X client listening for DeviceNotify
(for new input devices) or ConfigureNotify (for output changes) on the
root window.  gnome-settings-daemon has a "hotplug-command" under
org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.input-devices in its settings that
can do the former at least.
