Wayland doesn't (currently) support touchpad gestures for arbitrary
clients; trying to do it for X11 uncovered a whole host of really subtle
and annoying issues. The intention was to reserve trackpad gestures for a
gesture interpreter which lives in the compositor and is properly
integrated with, e.g., scrolling and tap-to-click.

Can I ask if you had a specific usecase in mind?
