AFAICS, that's almost exactly what the synaptics touchpad in my five
year old laptop could do. It didn't have two-finger scrolling but there
were "scrolling regions" (to the left and the bottom by default) and
two-finger click was interpreted as middle click (nice for Firefox). You
could even have right clicke by tapping in the bottom right corner. I
really liked these features as well.

But I must say that I really like the trackpoint of my Thinkpad X200
(doesn't have a touchpad) as well. Scrolling works by pressing the
middle button and bending the trackpoint. I got used to the little thing
in almost no time (less than two weeks).

I spend money without thinking on products and clothes that I believe
will enhance my social standing.
