[ubuntu-x] Future of digitizing tablet support in xorg?

At the moment, users of digitizing tablet
often have to compile x drivers themselves (!), e.g.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TabletSetupWizardpen
which seems rather a throwback to the 90's.
And even if they don't have to compile the drivers
themselves, it seems users still have to edit xorg.conf.

What are the prospects for moving from the current
situation to plug'n'play nirvana?

I ask because Wine is getting good enough that
tablet issues like this are starting to become limiting
factors for Photoshop use in Ubuntu.

Thanks,
Dan
