    Clustering is not useful in the case of, for instance, handwriting
    recognition (we all want embedded Linux PDAs now don't we :) ). I would
    suggest that rather than a compile time option, that an interface to
    kmouse be implemented to toggle clustering.

    Perhaps even some heuristic to cluster upto N events, but no more, with
    rules to force locations where buttons were pressed to never be
    clustered.
