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.
