that sadly wont happen, touchscreens will have t be supported by evdev
instead for which we dont have the setup yet, i'm trying to get that
going until feature freeze though. xorg dropped many of the header files
things like evtouch need to include at compile time, so drivers like
this will likely have to vanish in jaunty and be replaced by a new
mechanism sitting on top of evdev.
