Not really! omnewrotate doesn't ever take more than 1% and usually is
around 0% (according to top -d 1 -p ...)

What's very cpu intensive is to analyse continually many packets.

In my case I discard packets with '0's in values and packets which
are similar to the previous packet, besides sleeping for a few miliseconds
between reads.

I don't know how effective this technique will be for continuous reading
of data for gestures but...

It's easy to add that to omnewrotate, what's the mdbus command for
cancelling or muting a call? A symple system et voit la.

Of course it would be better to use dbus api, but it doesn't support that
yet (although I always wanted it to do some smart things with it).
