Now if someone with extra gadgets could confirm that...

The 'double-tap-and-drag' is not yet implemented. I'm still working on that,
as well as on 'virtual scrolling' and 'tossing' the pointer.

Do you notice any improvement when you run moused with '-a 0.75' or similar?
I'm trying to decide how much to slow the acceleration down by default. I'm

default too. Maybe I'm just handy? *grin*
