The HAL support is much improved in the most recent release of the linuxwacom driver, now that it supports the eraser, mouse and tablet buttons, but it still doesn't seem to recognize multiple pens. This is a very convenient feature, that would be very nice to have working in Linux

    You need to specify the styli with their own serial numbers in .fdi or xorg.conf to make use of the different tools. Hotplugging only deals with the default cases if you didn't define the tools in .fdi or xorg.conf. In your case, default for tools is to treat all tools of the same type (STYLUS, ERASER, CURSOR, etc) as one generic type of tools.
