For a different app, I have a need to be able to detect trackball roll events, even if I don't know the direction of the trackball roll, just the magnitude of the roll. The purpose is for me to be able to generate have visual or tactile feedback (flashes or 0.1ms vibrates, made bigger for rolls of multiple increments) instead of audible click feedback of trackball rolling. As I am a deaf guy, I miss the tactile feel of a trackwheel when upgrading to trackball devices.
