Enabling it by default will provide a welcome benefit for most users, not to

by default the option to deactivate tap-to-click for a few seconds after the
last keystroke while typing takes care of accidental clicks and I think,
therefore, this change will be welcome to all.

Not only that, but also some way of scrolling should be enabled by
default. I've had trouble with this one, in some netbooks. Trouble
here is, that not all touchpads support the same scrolling method.
Many modern ones do it through multi-finger dragging, but single-touch
pads in some netbooks may require simpler methods (ie: drag the edge).

The type of touchpad would have to be used in order to decide the
default, and that's a little less simple.

synaptics driver itself enables the two-fingered vertical scroll per
default as long as the device supports, and falls back to edge scroll
if not. If it doesn't work, it means something else breaks the

Tap-to-click is different. It's enabled as default only when no
physical buttons are found.

And, yeah, I also prefer having tap-to-click by default.
