Description Sven Gothel 2013-08-09 14:47:47 CEST
Currently, certain InputDevices simply send events to the global focused window.

However, in multi seat environements, we may like a different behavior
where input devices are assigned to the focused window per monitor.

We may assign mouse/keyboard by their USB location
to their 'closest' monitor device, assuming they are attached
to their monitor device's USB hub!
