Comment 85 for bug 565543

I know this is not the place to chat about stuff like this but I just
wanted to tell you and everyone else not to get their hopes up because
pinch gesture is horrible on a touchpad. Just try it on W7. The
resolution is too low, the touchpads are too small to do any useful
pinching.

Only good things are: double finger scrolling, double finger
clicks/taps, double finger pivot scrolling, as well as triple finger
similar stuff.

Ok let's not forget that we can't even configure some Synaptics and
ALPS devices for basic things like sensitivity and enable disable
while typing.
