I've created

To hold the change to the image for complex event data, (touch,  
acceleration, and location). This also contains the overrides for  
VMMaker to enable us to build a VM that supplies complex event types  
and deals with the proposed mmap changes for faster image reading  
(especially on the iPhone).


As mentioned contains the source code for yet another Objective-C  
bridge and was updated.

Now before anyone asks those new powerbooks with multi-touch events  
are *not* supported yet. I've not even seen the SDK changes from Apple  
yet that explain how you get the event data from Objective-C into your  

Plus I am still working on the basic infrastructure for the Objective- 
C based VM (I am also looking for funding to help expedite that effort).

So we are maybe months away from being able to deal with multi-touch  
events on os-x using those new powerbooks.
