Hey Christian,

Sounds like some fun stuff.  You might be interested in my [apple/ 
multitouch] object, its a more polished, native Pd object for getting  
the multitouch data on new apple trackpads and the iPhone. And there  
is no flext dependency to wrestle with.  I suppose [apple/multitouch]  
could easily be ported to Max/MSP too.
