Right now each touch driver has its own copy of generate_touch_input_event function and the whole mouse emulation machinery.

Most of this code is pretty much copy'n'pasted in a few places. It should be moved somewhere up the hierarchy and used by Allegro somewhere outside the code of the actual drivers.

Ostensibly mouse emulation API is unstable, and outright removal might not be unreasonable. Have you found a good use for it?

I've enabled touch support in some of my older games by using it - however, it wouldn't be hard to actually do it properly, so I'm not very attached to it.
