you don't get angles directly, but the magnitude of X, Y and Z vectors
(or more accurately: the accelerations). however, you can calculate
pitch and roll from the wiimote data. since g (gravity) is parallel to
the yaw rotation axis, you cannot track the yaw angle. 

the [wiimote-help] by mike wozniewski comes with an example about how to
do that.
