Hi,

I've pushed an Editor's Draft into HG for the discussed/proposed
joystick API. I've called it "Gamepad" instead of "Joystick" for now,
as I believe that's what we were leaning towards for a name (avoiding
"controller" as overly general, but moving away from the 1980's feel
of "joystick" ;-).

This was mostly a test to see if I could access hg successfully, so
I've simply pushed my initial attempt with a couple tweaks. Ted,
please don't take that as an indication that I'm overly attached to my
draft as a starting point, and please do start hacking it up wrt the
Mozilla design/implementation as you have time.

 It uses "ReSpec.js" to do formatting which seems to be a standard and
convenient way to get the standard formatting and boilerplate without
a lot of fiddling
<http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/ReSpec.js/documentation.html>.

For reference, the hg repository is at: <https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webevents/>
and the tip/HEAD of the draft is here:
<http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webevents/raw-file/tip/gamepad.html>

As discussed, the next step should be to outline use cases we hope to
address, and the scope of the API.
