Bug Description

For a touchscreen input device it would be nice to have an option to do the following:
When you press and hold a key on board, do not make that key repeat, but instead make it possible to slide around in order to move on to another key and output that key on release instead.
This adds the ability of correcting accidental tap on a wrong key.
It would improve touchscreen onboard experience a lot.
