Yes :)

It assumes that if I have to joysticks, they'll be in consecutive
entries, starting at the first. Maybe this is a reasonnable
assumption though.

Well, if you have your devices in /devices, the current code would
not work. Before you say it's weird, a distro could have /dev and
/devices, the first being the traditional arrangement and the second
being the new "tree" of devices. In fact, Sorcerer GNU/Linux has
exactly that, and it's on my laptop...

Hmm. That's because of Allegro's strange behavior when reading
files - I think you can't override a system wide cfg with a local
cfg or something similar - didn't really look in detail though.
Thanks for spotting it :)
