Right now we're looking at the LIS302DL from ST.  It's < 1mW power and
has selectable +/- 2 or 8g full-scale, and you can runtime-configure the
sample rate to either 100Hz or 400Hz.

Please be aware that this is an intermediate evaluation.  We do not
promise that this component will be used in the final product :)
