Yes, this should be reverted. This new methods makes configuration
inflexible, and adds some other disadvantages:
- all keyboards have the same layout, no way to set an individual
- keyboard layouts can only be configured by root, there's no way to
configure keyboard layouts other than editing a root-owned fdi file
I've attended a talk about XInput today, I heard things like
"trainwreck" and "should be fixed somewhere next year", so please don't
make things that are working now worse than they were before.
