Note that Xfce does have support commited to the 4.11.x branch, but
thats not in Fedora currently. :) We could backport that patch to 4.10,
but we are hoping there might actually be a 4.12 release this coming
weekend, and if all looks good/stable in rawhide, we might push for a
late f22 change to get it in f22. 

If all that happens, then yes, we would be fine with a libinput
change. ;)
