Tog on Gestures will force the mouse intoretirement

I agree Jakub - but this sort of thing is so much fun and gets people easy
kudos for being iconoclasts and revolutionaries its irresistible. Happens
all the time. I've probably done it myself as have half the people on this

We can find much in the world to make the same rallying cry about. "The
wheel should die! It's time for mag-lev cars!" or "Light switches should
die! Their binary tyranny must be crushed by the freedom of dimmer knobs!".
Every few years someone cries about how criminal it is software *still* is
only 2D.

Google's existing apps at the time and made to be contextual to
whatever page the user was on.
