The page says they will add joystick/gamepad support sometime.

Patch adding joystick support

This patch adds simple joystick support (It opens all available joysticks and

I will send this patch to the original maybe they will do another release then.

Talked to upstream about this and there are plans for major reworking of the code later this year.  People can download the files on thie bug and use them from their overlays but I'm not inclined to add the patch to portage since it won't be integrated upstream.  Nice patch though.
