Well, after a bit of testing I think 0.3 sec is more than enough :) and
syndaemon should ignore the ALT key (it doesn't seem to me that it's
configurable) because one actually uses alt+tap sometimes to move
windows and that is made impossible by syndaemon. 

Moreover, a touchpad configuration tab should be added to the mouse
preferences, in which one can configure wether to use syndaemon or not,
and the delay. Too sensitive touchpads are a problem for many cheap
laptops and syndaemon would increase usability a lot.
