Is it feasible to merge the two projects upstream? It seems like
having two different fingerprint sensor stacks and have the user
manually decide which one they want and then install it is a bit of a
suboptimal experience. It would be nicer if there were one stack that
supported all the fingerprint sensors available on the market.
