Linux should be able to handle joysticks just fine.

"Standard" capture cards/usb video input is handled just
fine by Linux.

There's no doubt an endoscopy module would be useful.
There's no doubt either that endoscopy needs images.

One thing to ponder might be whether GNUmed itself is the
best place to store the amounts of image/video data
endoscopy produces. That is up for debate.
