Or maybe a shorter term solution would be for HandMorph to continuously
send out some other sort of event, an "idle" event or something.  As long
as it's kept separate from mouseMove events.

Then again, there's not much point in HandMorph being responsible for
this... probably better to leave it up to the application to use stepping
or whatever, as you say.

In any case, my earlier hack is not the ultimate solution, but it shows a
quick and dirty way to restrict mouseMove events to actual mouse moves.
