Will it also be offering run-time detection of hardware?

My current pet peeve with X is that my USB tablet usually doesn't end
up on
the same /dev/input/event interface when I (re)plug it or reboot.
Would love
to even have a tool for changing the Device option of an InputDevice
on-the-fly. Current solution is editing the XF86Config file manually
time there's a problem and restarting X.

I wonder if it would be possible to just configure a new InputDevice
XF86Config and let the X driver for that device figure out which
interface is
the correct one. Maybe the X driver could look for the device in
usb? The latter sounds like the easiest solution by far.

I know there had been a lot of discussion about enhancing the input layer to handle your situation and other ones. But I don't think this will be in 4.4.0, certainly in 5.0 AFAIK.
