Graphical applications needs to find out the model of the pen that is used and the serial on the pen device to be able to tell them apart if there is multiple of one model. I believe that the new XInput functions XGetDeviceProperty is a good way to solve this and are available from version 1.2.

This will give the applications a chance to make the best use of the devices and remove all the need to guess based on number of axis and so on.
