Unless it is grabbed for other uses (eg. gestures), the system treats a
single touch as a pointer movement, so by default there is no
distinction between a single touch and a mouse.

Unity will grab all 3- and 4-touch actions and interpret them as
gestures.  1- and 2-touch actions are left for application use.
