Well, hal does what it's supposed to do - xorg isn't quite capable of using
hal, though.

Anyway, I had pointed out that a reason for the change was that we've been
bitching for 3 or 4 releases about the hard-coded support of Wacom tablets
in xorg.conf, so that should have been a clue to using the old config.
