Default 5.0-Current and Synaptics Touch Pad

I just updated current yesterday and noted that the changelog has enabled xf86-input-synaptics - my understanding is that I do not have to patch the kernel now. I have configured the synaptics touchpad previously in linux and use the touch pad exclusively as a pointing device.
The xorg.conf below gives a moving mouse cursor but no tap-to-click
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Mouse0"
	Driver	"synaptics"
	Option	"Protocol"	"wsmouse"
	Option	"Device"	"/dev/wsmouse"
	Option	"MaxTapTime"	"180"
	Option	"MaxTapMove"	"220"
	Option	"VertEdgeScroll"	"true"
        Option	"HorizEdgeScrool"	"true"
	Option	"TapButton1"	"1"
	Option	"SHMConfig"	"true"
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Builtin Default sis Device 0"
        Driver  "sis"
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Builtin Default sis Screen 0"
        Device  "Builtin Default sis Device 0"
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Builtin Default vesa Device 0"
	Driver  "vesa"
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Builtin Default vesa Screen 0"
        Device  "Builtin Default vesa Device 0"
Section "ServerLayout"
	InputDevice	"Mouse0"	"CorePointer"
        Identifier      "Builtin Default Layout"
        Screen  "Builtin Default sis Screen 0"
        Screen  "Builtin Default vesa Screen 0"
I get the following message after killing X
(EE) Synaptics Driver unable to detect protocol
(EE) PreInit returned NULL for "Mouse0"
I have a wsmouse in /dev.

Has anyone set this up?
