I am not sure which version of xf86Wacom.c Devian is using. I can only tell 
my part of the story.

I updated XFree86.org source tree with xf86Wacom.c changes we made in April, 
03. I sent another patch to them last month (it didn't get to the source 
tree yet. not sure why). I am planning to update them more often, say, once 
every quarter.

Please let me know if any of you are willing to test my future patches 
before I submit them to XFree86.org.

Thanks in advance.
