For a lot of cases, yes, it already does.

This is a very strong goal for Fedora 10, at least for me.  There are a
couple of outstanding things that are going to have to be taken care of:
*) Getting the X keyboard layout set based on /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
*) Need to be able to pass arbitrary options for input devices (eg, all
the stuff needed for wacom config)
*) Profit :-)

And there's some ideas on how to deal with both problems, there just
wasn't time left for Fedora 9.

The right answer here is going to involve an fdi file -- but that's also
then going to require fixing the X server to ask hal which driver to use
rather than the way it currently does
