    Please don't get confused by the directory layout ... this has mostly
    non-technical reasons -- Marcel wanted to keep bluetooth/hidp under his
    wings, and I didn't have reasons to object strongly.

    I am adding Marcel and Gustavo to CC just in case they have changed their
    mind, but it's definitely a side-topic in this discussion.
    Marcel, Gustavo -- if you are interested in the whole discussion regarding
    potential extension of HID core infrastructure to better suit multitouch,
    please see the whole thread at http://marc.info/?t=133105322800006&r=1&w=4
