You are quite right, finding methods that ensure that statistic 
stability is the
theme of my bachelor thesis :)
I am stresstesting the input analysis / framework right now. It all 
depends on
finding just the right measure of quality of the analysis and time 
thats needed
to do that. So far Im using very little time, almost no delay, but the 
detection is not at +90%.

Its also a question of location for the least reliable filter. If I can 
get the overall
statistic at +90% and put my filter first. While it may miss the right 
click, the
event will still be processed normally and probably be a left click.

The factors are widely spread. It can be a problem if the user messed 
the microphone settings f.e. ...
I have to come up with some solution to that :/

I deactivated ANY html now... I hope it works :(
