As far as I understand, KDE upstream is now porting configuration
module to KDE Frameworks 5 - so it means they already have quite a lot
of work ahead but on the other hand, it wouldn't be a bad idea to start
new port with libinput, as it seems to be preferred way in the future.
So maybe worth talking to them and in a best case, we could get both
in F22 timeframe...
