What "smoothing" algo are you thinking of? I've been very very happy with
the low-pass method that Thomas suggested some time ago. Gives you a great
feeling of enertia.
I'm looking forward to a proper HCI tablet driver for OSX or dirrect wacom
support in HID.
I think this is a great project.
I will find the auto-scaling stuff very useful in the near future I think...
Thanks for your efforts.
