No.

I don't like EvStack because I don't see the point. We can already
support multiple keyboards and multiple displays, and we don't need
EvStack to do so.

The only real reason I've heard so far for EvStack is a "performance"
issue, from people who have apparently read some SGI papers on it. That
may not be the only reason for it, but it's the only one I've heard.

And quite frankly, when we're talking about mice and keyboards that send
a few hundred events a second at the most, I can't but wonder about
people who think performance is a big issue.
