Basically it is done as GLEW lib. You just  load required dll and copy 
addresses to function pointers. You only call function pointers when you 
was able to load appropriate version of the library (check win ver). 
This requires custom declaration and loading. I can do it.

There is Synatics API which is used in most win laptops. Don't know how 
good it is. We can add
if(mouse && touchpad){use_touchpad_as_touch_only()}
