Well, this exact idea didn't came up before, but there was a discussion
whether an accelerometer could/should be use for input. The summary is: No,
due to the fact the accelerations are too un-uniqe. They might happen while
walking, or anywhere else...
I personally do like this idea, but I think it's too hard to implent... (I'm
on a Macbook Pro with motion sensors, and it's nearly impossible to detect
whether it's been moved or shaken...)
