just a general note here, especially in light of Jason's comments:
this statement above isn't true for external tablet devices like
the Wacom Intuos series (the ones *not* integrated into a touchscreen).
There are workflows where the device is used in absolute mode and mapped to
a specific monitor even though it's external like a touchpad. In fact, IMO
it's the more sane mode for these devices as the only other alternative is
to have the tablet span all outputs, making everything a bit weird.

With those devices, unplugging an output should thus map the tablet to the
remaining one.

It's not yet something weston needs to worry about given the other things
that you need in place for this to work (specifically: tablet area ratio to
monitor ratio). But keep this filed away in the back of your head anyway.

Cheers,
