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.

Best Regards,
