      Hi Mark (and vim_mac),

      It's been a long time since this thread was started but I have now
      implemented rudimentary gesture support for MacVim.

      With the latest source code version there are now several new pseudo keys:

      <SwipeLeft> <SwipeRight> <SwipeUp> <SwipeDown>
      <PinchIn> <PinchOut>
      <RotateCW> <RotateCCW>

      For instance, the following (rather dull) maps let you change buffers
      by swiping:

      nmap <SwipeLeft> :bN<CR>
      nmap <SwipeRight> :bn<CR>

      All new keys are bound to nothing by default (I could not think of any
      "natural" default bindings for them).

      Note that the Pinch/Rotate keys generate a lot of events in one go so
      I'm not sure they will be very useful at this point in time. The
      swipe keys are more "reliable".

      I can't think of anything really useful for this feature yet -- does
      anybody have any neat ideas?
