No and yes :-)  The X-server Maemo uses is not capable of using a
mouse because 1)  There is no existing option (as OS2007 is shipped)
to tell it to look for one and 2)  Even when you point it to a mouse
it still does not work.  Tried it this weekend and although pairing
worked fine the X server refused to respond to the mouse, using the
-mouse <device_path> option.

Daniel, I note that you're the build-master and author of a lot of the
changes for the X/kdrive server (I built it over the weekend and dug
around in the code).  I'm still unclear on what is causing the mouse
to not work, and how you would tell it what type of mouse is
connected.  In hw/kdrive/linux/mouse.c I can see the code for handling
different types of mice and it appears to be compiled into linux.a for
linking against, since you need it for tslib.  It's unclear how much
of linux.a is used for kdrive beyond tslib.c.  Can you give me a
couple hints for starting work on getting a mouse functional?
