Presumably there won't be one system-wide event stream containing the
merged events of all users of the multi-user system. Each "terminal"
(set of display, keyboard, etc.) should have one stream of input events.
Each one should have its "main" pointer device look like "pointer device
#0" or whatever to the apps that run on it.
You don't need to support 100 input sources per head. Eight or whatever
was proposed will be fine, since 95% of systems will use two sources,
4.99% will use three sources, and the other .01% are beyond the
reasonable scope of such a unification attempt. Yes, of course those
are fabricated statistics, just like 83.5% of all statistics are. :-)
