No, what I meant was not that they'd both be in the same _file_, but that
the same general approach should be used - i.e. if we set xrandr
settings with a daemon, then tablet settings should likewise be done
via daemon, but if we use a .xrandrrc file, then doing it as a .wacomrc
file makes sense.  (Or, really, it should be files in ~/.config/)
