Its in the works.  The present UI will not support it, however, the new
UI will.  The code to add mouse gestures has been submitted, and as soon
as the new UI is mature enough to handle mouse events (right now, you
can't always identify which "thingy" was clicked), I'm hoping to get it

If you want the patch (which doesn't really do much other than write the
gestuere name to the console), check out:


In any case, it will happen eventually assuming the powers that be like
