Those are rather "how does it work", not "let's change something because
it's not optimal".

I don't think we need to rework it almost completely. Perhaps we need to
change a hook here or there.

otherwise you don't know if the core is adequate. And you have to have
at least one common input device.

But perhaps it is a workable idea after all, given the "another
