      i am a mac book pro user, and i do not always use an external keyboard and mouse. the touchpad is easily reached while editing, and without me needing to move my hand too much. so i would consider it a nice feature to switch e.g. between buffers.

Other than swiping to change buffers or tabs, there is no seeming natural fit forgesturesthat make sense. So the question is, other than coolness how does this interaction improve the user's experience with vim? I, for one, am not at all certain howgestureswould improve or increase my productivity in vim. Let us not forget the purpose of vim is as an editor of text, so I ask, dogesturesin fact bring an improvement to editing in vim or are they a feature for feature's sake?
