Well, all (except tablets of course) mouse drivers report relative movements
(even in X11 at the lowest level).

We just need to export this to user-space via the X11 API.

I once started a thread about this on the FD.O lists and people seemed to
agree it would be doable and (if not too ugly) accepted into the X.org tree.
Now we just need to find someone to code it :)
