My guess is that if you google for it you'll find a gesture recognition
module for python. is one such implementation.  However
it is up to you to tie it into your chosen GUI toolkit.  It merely
processes tuples of points in the gesture.  Each GUI toolkit has mailing
lists and forums that would help you know that information, which is not
really python-specific.
