the Haiku driver is not based on the one by Sander Stocks. It's originally from 
Olaf van Es, rewritten by myself with contributions for additional models by 
Frans van Nispen. (Hope I didn't misspell any names...) I know there is also 
Sander's driver, but AFAIK, it was never open source. It does have the nice 
preflet though, but unfortunately never worked for my devices.The Haiku driver 
has the problem currently, that the anti-jitter filter has tweaked values for 
my Intuos2, but gives too much jitter for a Graphire2. Hopefully I can figure 
something out eventually.

Best regards,
