There are applications for which this isn't good enough but I guess there must 
be other, low-level ways to query the current state of a given input device or

I'm toying around with a click-and-hold-opens-the-contextmenu feature (ported 
from Mac where this makes a bit more sense), based on the TapAndHold gesture. 
looks like that event is good demonstration why event tracking isn't 100% 
reliable. When I activate processing of that gesture on a QToolButton with a 
menu, it finishes (triggers) even when I am not holding any mouse button. The 
event filter in which I implement this feature also catches MouseRelease and 
MouseMove events (to turn off the gesture processing); I'm not getting those 
either when the QToolButton's menu is open.

IOW, when I click once on the button to open its menu, the contextmenu is 
too after the expected delay. The only reliable way I found to prevent this is 
to check if the mouse button is still pressed when the TapAndHold gesture 
to be finished.
