Actually... /dev/input/mice is a conglomeration of signals from all
input devices - but each mouse-type device should also be
/dev/input/mouse#. For example, on my laptop, I have both the synaptics
touchpad built in, and an external USB mouse. I have /dev/input/mouse0
and /dev/input/mouse1, and signals from both of them will appear on
/dev/input/mice (and in 2.6, also be transmitted over /dev/psaux). It
makes it VERY convenient, because you can point X at /dev/input/mice,
and get the data from either mouse connected.
