A number of my suggestions were for feature parity, specifically:

>> -Two-finger scrolling on/of (both horizontal and vertical independently)
>> -Corner coasting on/off
>> -Setting various sensitivity parameters (touchpad sensitivity,
>> acceleration, two finger detection, circular scrolling speed, palm
>> detection, coasting speed, tap timing, etc).  These should be sliders.
>> -Change the coasting threshold to a slider

And these are just basic synaptics driver parameters:

>> -Palm detection on/off
>> -Locked drags on/off
>> -"Guest Mouse" (stick) on/off
>> -Rectangular vs circular pad.
