I am looking forward to this code to be ported into Cinnamon.
Really, I wish Cinnamon, Gnome, and XFCE could all be merged, each giving meaningful input for Desktop, Tablet, and Lightweight.
It's time to get it together!
The downside is: having a thumb that is good for texting goes completely against the grain of what you want for the use of fine dexterity for other applications.
