Major Advances in Multitouch Hacking for Google Android G1

Greetings. Google Android G1 hackers should definitely note this truly excellent work by Luke Hutchison towards practical support of "multitouch" input for G1 applications. As he notes, there are some hardware-related limitations, but for the sorts of situations where most apps could make use of multitouch (e.g. page zooming, etc.) his techniques (which are backwards-compatible for non-multitouch-aware programs) look extremely promising. Nice job, Luke!
