True, still figuring out which wacom settings are useful for the
interface. Esp. the button events are quite complicated.

Well you cannot reset a lot of values, only the feedback (send -1),
for properties there is no way to reset them, same for the button
mapping, so what basically involves all other settings.
We could work with an Apply button and a reset to undo the changes,
but I doubt that will be any useful for input devices...

The event is still a mouse click, however in the tooltip i can mention
you can tap the touchpad to generate a click.

Well the defaults are already quite good in most cases, if not, very
system specific (think multi-screen setups where each screen layout
results in a different transformation matrix), so not something I'd
burn my finger on right away.
