Ben and Campell did some nice work on the joystick sensor, so it can now 
use more than one joystick.

Because I was just yesterday writing the joystick sensor for the new 
gamekit, I looked a bit closer and found some things:

- Code: joystick sensor .pydoc is not there

- Code/Gui: Hat controllers usually have 9 directions not 12 like a 

- GUI: joystick "Axis" label is missleading, it is more a "stick" (4 
ways analog or not), same for "Right Axis" etc... Should be "Right, left..."

- Code: how many sticks (or axis) are supported per joystick? I have a 
RC controll which will provide 5 or more analog axis

- GUI: the type menu (right of the new index button) is very small. 
There is more space to the right, lets use it

- Code: There are no functions to get the information which buttons are 
pressed or how the hat is moved

Cheers and thanks,
