The ReMoko version on the svn is my work version, I know that I have
relative path and also the setup.py is incomplete, and some other glitches
remain there. Until 16 Set I can't take a look on that :(

Thanks, I miss that one.

The server handles all the HID communications, is like a bridge for the
client UI, I use a unix socket because the BlueZ devs recommend it to me,
besides a dbus interface will be slower, because in the mouse profile I have
to send every small movement (pixel by pixel).

Yes, I already made more code, but right now I don't have time and
concentration until I finish my last exam (16 Set) :(
Thanks for the tips.
I will get in touch with you after 16 Set.
