I am currently investigating adding support for 3D input devices to pcbnew.

One other piece of information I forgot to include is that for development under Linux you can use the libspnav0(-dev) libraries. The description for the library is:

navigator", "space pilot", "space traveller", etc).

That eliminates the worry about needing to use proprietary drivers.
