Description Daniel Stone 2008-04-18 14:58:28 UTC
It would be nice for security reasons if we could censor the motion history, by tagging the motion with the client the event would've been (or was) delivered to.  This prevents people from arbitrarily snooping the entire pointer motion: if they weren't going to get any events through normal event delivery, they won't get anything from the event history.  This will still let apps using motion hints work.
