I think including it in our package until HAL gets it is probably the right
move. More package churn on the server is probably going to be a fact of
life for a while anyway. The reason I haven't really put much work in to
input hotplug is because I've been focused on getting output autodetection
in better shape. Once that's done, I'll get to this if no one else beats
me to it.
