We already have the amazing gesture recognition daemon by P.V.Borza which is
pending integration with the frameworkd. I think most applications will not
want to read the accellerometer data directly, but rather react to signals in
terms of gestures. Those (few) applications that do need direct access can
read from the input device nodes directly.
