Hi folks,

I probably already mentioned some time ago that I'm working on
an 9P[1] based gpm. The idea is:

* gpm becomes a little 9P fileserver
* settings are exposed via separate files (one per setting)
* another file sends the mouse events in another file as strings
  (easy to parse w/ sscanf()). 
* the events have absolute and relativ positioning (eg. for
  (touch screens)
* multiple mice supported (eg. for multitouch)
* each driver gets it's own distinct server (and binary)
* multiple devices are put together via an multiplexer server
* servers and libgpm go to different packages

My current works are a bit outdated, will rebase it in next days.
