Sorry, confusion about the term "controller" there.  I was using the
term to refer to the input device in the computer, to which you can
connect some number of external devices - confusingly also referred to as
"controllers".  In other words, we could support multiple physical input
devices - perhaps so several people could be using Zigzag collaboratively?
