I agree with that - it works almost like that on mac and I like the
behavior - if you have a finger-painting app and you move three finger
on the touch pad, then it will start drawing and then the system-wide
three-finger-swipe gesture kicks-in and the apps stops receiving touch
events. (note that it doesn't get any touch-undo events).
I believe it works pretty well.
