How can the presence of a mouse or touchpad (pointer device in general) be detected using the Ubuntu SDK?

This would be useful for presenting a more suitable interface for use with a pointer device.

I understand this may not be implemented yet but is a planned feature. In which case, answers can wait until it is implemented or outline the planned API
