As long as the new release is considered a "stable" release of the
driver, I think it's a very reasonable request.  Please file a bug
in bugzilla.  If it requires both kernel changes and driver changes,
be sure to file a separate kernel bug report and a separate
linuxwacom package report.  If the new driver is dependent on having
any kernel changes, be sure to indicate that if you're aware, so that
rpm dependencies can be set up correctly.
