Simon noted that you might want to get rid of these ENABLEs, since there's nothing particularly scary or platform-specific about this feature, and it has/will have a runtime flag, and won't do anything if the client doesn't care, anyway. That said, I think that can happen later, perhaps in https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135721.

Maybe "maximumDistanceForLongMousePress", or something (that's not a great name either, but a little better). "pointsHysteresis" reads oddly to me.

> Source/WebCore/page/EventHandler.cpp:780
> +        beginLongMousePress();

Is this "beginTrackingPotentialLongMousePress"? because I don't think the *long* mouse press is technically beginning yet. But I dunno!

> Source/WebCore/page/EventHandler.cpp:1585
> +    // FIXME: bubble long mouse press up to the client.

Capital 'B', perhaps. Also, do you have a bug number for these?

> Source/WebCore/page/EventHandler.cpp:1619
> +    if (mouseEvent.button() != LeftButton || mouseEvent.type() != PlatformEvent::MouseMoved)

Why would long press be restricted to the left mouse button? Should we not support long-press of any arbitrary button and let the client decide which ones it cares about? I could see that being useful.

I think this would read better as just:

if (mouseHysteresisExceeded(mouseEvent.position(), longMousePressPointsHysteresis))

return false;

> Source/WebCore/page/EventHandler.cpp:3527
> +bool EventHandler::mouseHysteresisExceeded(const FloatPoint& viewportLocation, const int pointsThreshold) const

This is still technically about drag, in some sense. Maybe "dragDistanceExceedsThreshold"? That sounds good in an if statement ("if dragDistanceExceedsThreshold").

> Source/WebCore/page/EventHandler.cpp:3535
> +    return abs(delta.width()) >= pointsThreshold || abs(delta.height()) >= pointsThreshold;

Should this be something like delta.diagonalLengthSquared() >= pointsThreshold * pointsThreshold, to make a circle of hysteresis?

I see you got this from existing code, so maybe don't change it, but I wonder why!
