Right, what I meant to say was that we won't be able to just use a
catchall inputclass, we'll have to use one section with MatchIsKeyboard,
one with MatchIsPointer, and so on for each device type (matches within
one section are ANDed). I find this a bit less pleasing, but it will
still work, so it's probably not a huge problem.
