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
