Why pretend it's a mouse? evdev (kernel & xf86) has multitouch 
absolute-positioned cursor-handling code built in which doesn't care if 
the device in question is a mouse, touchpad, touchscreen, etc.. As far 
as I know, the device just has to advertise its inputs right, and it 
should be picked up. That said, Meego's mtev driver has been more 
competent on the X11 side in my experience.

What am I missing?
