[webkit-help] Firing Touch Events through custom drivers and Custom Event types

I've been trying to figure out how exactly i should proceed to perform the
following operations on WebKit Core,  if at all possible (in order to apply
the changes to all ports).

1) Trigger the touch events from touch screen through a custom driver. I
have some doubts if this can really be done in the Core layer or has to be
port specific due to the screen's drivers.

2) Create custom events which can be registered by elements in the dom tree
(e.g.: such as elem.onclick= function() or elem.addEventListener). These
events are also fed through a custom driver which receives input from a
joystick or a webcam.

3) Integrate the changes in the build system. From what i can tell, this
needs to be done a per port basis. Unless, of course, the build-script
generates these files.
