OK.  I'll start with an irc query.

Essentially, the touch gestures are available as javascript events in
the same way that mouse events are available.  I'd link the swipeleft
and swiperight events to the {newer | older} button and page links.
Clicking a link or button works without any javascript support.  Adding
the swipe support should be pretty painless.
