    Right now both HID and XInput seem to be the only available interfaces on Windows (can't find documentation about it so I can't confirm).

    I think it would be a good idea to support DirectInput and/or SDL as it would increase the amount of devices with default mappings (specially in the case of SDL) and rumble support (in the case of DirectInput). Would supporting this interfaces be actually a good idea then? What I'm missing? The docs aren't the best so it's difficult to know.

    Thank you.
