Seems like he didn't understand your question. "Resolved for all input
devices" means input-hotplug which is used as you know.. The problem is
just that wacomdrv doesn't have the options or infrastructure to configure
stylus/eraser/pad all in one go. HAL/input-hotplug/xserver can't do that
for the driver.
Seems like some work is happening, but so far no comments from Ping:
