The PCI-gameport type drivers that are published use the generic joystick 
module, that I don't believe has been developed yet.   The generic module only 
supported the 15-pin type connectors.  It might not be too hard to develop, but 
it is legacy device.    I think USB joysticks are a bigger challenge.

As a side note on the Device Kit,  I always thought it might be fun to extend 
the GeekPort  API to parallel port functionality.    You could use some of the 
parallel port digital I/O to control outputs or read digital inputs.  Any 
thoughts ?
