Uh, I forget why I didn't originally go with the Wacom, there was
probably a lot of code to deal with relative addressing that I didn't
want to wade through and the Summagraphics was simple and did exactly
what we needed.  The esotericness of the Summagraphics is academic,
there's default support for both `gpm' and `X' for it so the presence or
absence of real hardware doesn't really matter.

Long term I think we should go with the USB tablet, it is transparently
supported by Windows and it should be simple to support under Linux.
