Basically, it is a 2 years old (stable and proven) implementation of all the
low level technologies I would need.
Thanks a lot for the links.
This will make the whole thing MUCH more easier to implement.
Then, a good general plan can be:

- Create QBlobEvent/KBlobEvent from X blobevents
- Create a library that taking Q/KBlobEvent generate KGestureEvent
- Send all the new events to the applications.
- Modify KActions to make them use KGestureEvents

Anyway, it seems that so far the blob events is not in the X server, will
not immediately enter official X repository. So I will start playing with
libtouch/MPX server instead.

I'll try to go to the LinuxConf next year... :P
