Hi, I packaged xfree86-driver-synaptics (Touchpad driver for xfree86,
it's basically ready, will upload in a couple of days) and I have
one question here:

is there some magic/modularization/cooperation you can think of to
provide some autoconfiguration also for addons/external plugins?
(I'm also waiting for ideas to pop up of my head but I'd need to go
deeper in xfree debconf scripts).

synaptics_drv.o basically needs to be loaded in the "Module" section and
needs a bunch of of options in the "InputDevice" section (there are
reasonable defaults)

Detecting it is just a matter of grepping /proc/bus/input/devices

any idea?
