Hi Karsten et al,

Thumbs and fingers... I've never programmed with a touch screen, but
I'm interested in trying my hand (ha). How accurate is a finger on the
Neo touch screen? Does the sensor average the pressure to a single
point or register a many points over a wide area? Could a drawing
program reasonably use finger input? Would the screen be quickly
filled with a mess of big fat lines or could one do some descent
sketches with an index finger? What is the smallest distinguishable
'A', 'L', and smiley face?
