Dean, In your first email you mentioned that it would be good to use a
gyro to supply the direction of gravity in the Accelerometer event, to
allow it to be subtracted from the measured acceleration. We hadn't
previously considered a gyro but this sounds like a useful addition.
Are you still keen to add it? It's probably best to add three new
optional acceleration values to the acceleration event for the actual
device acceleration (ie without gravity).
