I have low-level scripts that read gestures by tailing the log files. There is a small lag, but still quite usable.
I have only published a TINY portion of my experimental code.
EDIT: You can read gestures like this:
tail -f /var/log/Xorg.0.log
The gestures are numeric "button codes". I posted what they all meant a long time ago. I will search the forum for them...
UPDATE: Found it! You just need to use the right set of search keywords. I started the "Kindle Touch Gesture Engine" thread back in January. I guess it was too far ahead of its time. Perhaps NOW is the time. People can add it to the script code base I have published here.
Here is sample gesture log output (with interpretation) for all the gestures I could get it to report:
The log file is actually quite responsive, and useful for reading gestures with scripts.
The kindle touch does not support 3-finger gestures (other than two fingers on screen while pressing the Home button).
