The complaint is that it doesn't work out of the box with current Xorg. If
that is a showstopper (it certainly is at the very least very undesirable!)
then it doesn't matter how simple the required config change is -- if any
change is required at all then the patch is untenable.

How hard would it be to contineu to provide the combined device as well as
the new split-out pointer device?
