I never expected anything would be out already. Yeesh! I asked if anyone was "planning development" in this area and if not, put a bug in developers' ears (which I think has happened).

It's still interacting with hardware. Even though I took electrical engineering in school, my brain has been muddied this past half decade by pure computer programming only. Give me a website or some open-source software, and I can tweak it to do whatever I want. Give me access to hardware interaction like a touch screen, and I'll tinker, but I have zero experience with it.

Never heard of that, but makes sense. Thanks. Never meant to offend anyone or break some unwritten rule (I did check to see if, like XDA, you aren't supposed to post in here unless you made something yourself). I just wanted to spark discussion, which it seems I have.

Cool ideas. I'd add getting rid of the "Personal" banner on the covers of personal docs.

Note that I don't think anyone is showing impatience with the development community or being pushy. Just sharing some ideas. I apologize if adding further ideas is perceived as out of line.

Aw, so ....
I can see now that it is just a matter of the terminology in use.

What you say you don't do is: System's Programming.
What you say you do is: Application's Programming.

If the system's event interface provides outputs for those actions, then what you request is a matter of: Application's Programming.

The System's Programming layer(s) between you and the hardware will deal with the hardware for you.

Gestures are typically presented as if they where key presses -

So if you can handle some strange key press (? Alt-Ctrl-Mode-Shift-X ?) then you can handle a touch screen gesture.
Without even knowing it came from a touch screen.
