Okay, that's basically what I meant with "deamon". A piece of software that's 
responsible for reading the input of a device and forward pre-computed 
information as events to whoever might be concerned. 

Side-effect: If the accelerometer get's replaced by another model only this 
part has to be rewritten and not all software using the feature.

While writing these lines: I think Gestures 
( may do exactly this already.
