walter -- currently we try at boot time and set the touchpad to
whichever mode the user last requested.  moving this
initialization to sugar was one of the last changes you made to
the sugar code, i think.

but when you were in the office you mentioned that it might be
preferable to always revert to capacitive (normal) mode at boot
time, so that the user doesn't get stuck or confused by "pen
mode" (which is certainly less "discoverable' than normal mode). 

the more i think about it, the more i think that's a good idea. 
what do other people (who, hopefully have tried both modes)
