The nVidia panel should be using the already existing, standard, XRandR
APIs so it can be configured the same way as the Intel, ATI, or whatever
else cards.

As for the Wacom tablets, there's just no other similar hardware from
other vendors. There's the beginning of some support for Fujitsu based
graphics tablets, but not much else 1) available at all 2) available and
usable under Linux.

If there's other hardware we can support with the same UI, we'll
certainly do our best to support it.

That's the idea. Same goes for the FireGL control panel from ATI.
