Thanks for the suggestion. We're in the process of testing that; it
does stop the touchpad from transmitting data, but there are some
reinit issues to be investigated. Quoth pgf, "the added latency
due to the reinit when we enter/exit ebook mode might or might not be
acceptable. and our touchpad (sentelic) needs some boot time
initialization from user-level -- we're not sure whether we'll need
to redo some or all of that. (we do seem to lose the current values of
vscroll and hscroll, for instance.)"
