something like QKeyEvent, QMouseEvent, QTabletEvent,
QTouchEvent and QWheelEvent?

class MyWidget(QWidget):
  def mousePressEvent(self, event):
    if event.type() == QEvent.TabletPress:
      print '%s clicked with Tablet' % self.objectName()

It would be more difficult to differentiate between two mice
