RFE: strip scrolling for tablets in xf86-input-libinput
Submitted by Eevee

I have an old Wacom Intuos3, which has a touch strip on each side of the drawing area.
libinput recognizes them, and fires TABLET_PAD_STRIP events when touching them. xinput lists them as unnamed valuators 3 and 4 on the pad, and
xinput query-state shows a value corresponding to where I'm touching the strip.
xev doesn't show any X events, and I can't find any user-facing way to bind behavior to an arbitrary valuator. It seems that the strips are supported, but not actually usable.
(The wacom driver treats the strips as equivalent to a scroll wheel, which is fantastically useful for zooming while drawing.)
