Actually, I should have said "might be made obsolete." I had in mind
onscreen buttons and the like. However, ergonomic and screen real
estate considerations might actually make keyboard hotkeys a better
option even in this case. Another advantage is that keyboards give
nice tactile feedback so you know when they're pressed without

Anyway, I'm going to hold off on my multi-touch interface feature
requests for the time being :)
