please also consider PWM for the vibrator.  the vibrator is not vibrating as
strong in GTA02 than it did in GTA01.  This is probably due to the fact that it
now runs on Vbatt rather than IO_3V3 (i thought it is just not good to run a
high-current consumer like an electrical motor off a digital power lane).
However, the higher voltage (it is within spec of the vibrator) seems to make the
vibration less powerful.  I suspect it is moving too fast to resonate. 

Having PWM on the vibrator would allow us to try to optimize the optimum RPM
for maximum vibration.
