Okay that's /amazing/, and not at all intuitive!  I mean I'd expect
multimedia/webcamd to only attach to "video" devices, but lo and behold
I get a /dev/input/event0 device which spits out gibberish when
cat(1)'ed and I touch the screen!

My intentions were to port Linux's hid-multitouch device in whole to
FreeBSD (it's what attaches to my eGalax device and probably to OP's
touchscreen device) and add support for the device to moused(8), but
it's not very high on my priority list...
