Both are not mutually exclusive. Many devices (TabletPC, serials
tablets, since they don't work with the .fdi method yet) may still need
to use xorg.conf for Jaunty anyway.

The tool can output to xorg.conf and .fdi, we can hide that option, or
keep it for testing purposes (like Experimental). Even if the method use
xorg.conf for Jaunty, we will surely need more than one release to test
the .fdi feature

Do we need a Blueprint of something of sort? Who do we make sure the
feature is on UDS agenda, a who will do the presentation? I won't attend
UDS, but if I'd like to participate in the discussion (or present the
Blueprint if necessary and if it's possible by VOIP/chat)

BTW, I updated the GUI mockup at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom/PropertiesMockup and it's
attached as a .svgz
