... you may want to put these nice features into the mousedev.c driver
for now, so that the touchpad works with standard XFree without the
event based driver.

Also, I'm attaching Jens Taprogge synaptics work, which you may want to
integrate ...

To Jens: Sorry for me not using your driver. It's very good, too.
Hopefully you'll be able to work together with Peter to bring the best
out of the two to the kernel.
