Summary0002437: Trackpad navigation on mac does not use full capabilities of the trackpad
DescriptionOSX conventions are:

* Pinch to zoom in/out (currently this is done via scroll gesture)
* 2-finger scroll gesture to pan (currently done via shift-move)
* Recognise sideways scrolling (ie 2d, not 1d as with mouse wheel)

These changes would make better use of the extended touch capabilities on mac laptops and the Apple magic touchpad.
