Bug Description

Depends on:
 * bug #622781
 * bug #731375

Related to:
 * bug #622753

Once we have a good sense of what we can do with the data that's associated with the components of a gesture (see bug #622781), we're going to be able to start collecting data. We'll need a script or compiled executable to do this. The script needs to do the following:
 * query the user to perform a particular gesture (e,g., "Please perform a 3-finger tap")
 * let the user know what the gesture engine recognized
 * record the complete data set of the gesture
 * let the user know that the gesture has been recorded
 * ask for another gesture, and repeat process
 * this app should eventually cycle through all defined/recognized gestures and repeat
 * bonus points: after cycling through an entire set, gestures that did not match what grail expected should be re-queried with more frequency than others.

The thought I have here is to use the recording mechanism in https://bugs.launchpad.net/utouch-gesturetest/+bug/622690. Tagging using time ought to be enough to reconstruct the setting perfectly.

A late update to Henrik's comment: yes! utouch-evemu will do the trick.

A first step would be a CLI script that wraps it...

Since this is no longer a task in progress, I am closing the bug as won't fix. If we begin work on this task again, we will track progress elsewhere anyway.
