haha yak, youre a godly coder!
Is it possible to stop jumping? Lets say I have my index finger down and then try to tap with my middle finger, a lot of the times it wants to jump to the location of the last finger that was just placed.
It seems like it might not be fixable - is there a string that doesnt allow mouse movement after the first finger is set down (doesnt move the pointer to the position of the second or third finger that is put down later), but still detects multiple fingers for tapping or swiping?
Pulling off flawless one + one finger tapping is somewhat difficult and two + one is almost impossible for me. Might be my trackpad, so let me know if yours works with ease.
Also, another request\question: is it possible to add a per-program configure setting that lets you set specific settings in specific programs? Such as scroll mode (you already have this implemented, just a little hidden), what tapping does, etc. OS X has a similar program to do this, called multi-clutch:

And in the future will you implement features such as: two or three finger swipe gestures (two\three back and forward allows you to go back and forward in the browser, etc). I know these can be done with the hacked driver, but I guess what I am ultimately asking is if, one day, you will create a full blown package that will not need any synaptics drivers at all?
With all the fuss and news about macbooks getting multitouch gestures and firefox 3.1 adding multitouch gestures for macbooks, I think you came up with a pretty significant creation here, yak.
I can (with the hacked driver and your tool) basically do all of the gestures the macbook can do (not pinching, yet, but doesn't seem all that useful anyways). Although the twisting to switch tabs sounds pretty sexy.
I currently have two finger swipes left\right to go back and forth, although it can be tricky at times (might scroll down\up first) and is probably best suited for three finger swipes and horizontal scrolling left for two finger swipes. Could you enable three finger swipes for left\right to switch tabs or go back\forward perhaps? - there isn't an option to do triple finger left and right swipes in the hacked drivers

Three-finger swipes left and right go back a page and forward, respectively, while up and down go to the top and bottom of the current page; twists switch tabs, in the direction you spin; and pinches zoom in and out.
I know I have a lot of requests\suggestions, let me know if I am becoming an annoyance!
Thanks again, Yak
If you want to go widely public when you feel your program is finished with all the features you have planned, let me know. I am good at writing up detailed instructions and spreading the news to large tech blogging sites, although they may not be needed if you do an all-in-one
Here's a guide I wrote up on getting double-finger\single finger scrolling to work in a hackintosh on any pc laptop (I couldn't get double-finger to work on my trackpad, but I got single finger scrolling to work - using the flat part of my single finger to scroll and the tip of it to move the mouse):
