People who will use the device in the bus or in the car will hate you,
unless there is an *easy* way to disable those small gestures, or make sure
it is not too sensitive. :)

While I don't mind using large gestures to perform some operations (like
turning the phone upside-down to prevent it from ringing), I don't think
small gestures should be on by default.  Otherwise, it'll be very hard to
use in any case other than sitting down and almost not moving at all...
