unlikely since it requires SHMConfig enabled by default in xorg which we
wont do by default since it rips open quite a security hole (everyone,
even remotely logged in people can change the trackpad settings for the
locally logged in user). 

i guess a better bet is to do it via hal input methods which are
supposed to replace the input configuration in X at some point (and
hopefully be introduced in time for intrepid).
