New Wacom Touch tablet and Quartz Composer

You may or may not have seen the latest release from Wacom, a consumer-aimed multitouch (ahem, multi=2 tracking points) tablet that works with a pen or two fingers.

I'm interested in using it as a test bed for some multi-touch ideas in conjunction with QC, and am wondering if anyone else has tried it yet, and how to go about that.

At a guess, the HID patch would be my first thing to reach for, but I've not been able to get anything useful out of it using an older Wacom, which may be a driver issue.

There's a Tablet patch already in Quartz Composer. I don't imagine it will be able to handle multitouch tablets, but it's worked for me with my Intuos A5.

Have you got some fresh news about this project ? Does the new "Wacom Bamboo (2 fingers) Touch" work in QC with the HIDPatch or the TabletPatch ? Is there a way to use this TouchTablet in QC ?
