doing this requires:

1) a control surface that sends a message to indicate the start of
"touch" and the end of it too
2) ardour to handle said message with the knowledge that it means
"start touch" and "end touch"

right now, "touch" is really limited to LogicControl (Mackie) and
mouse driven fader riding, since these are the only control surfaces
that indicate the start and end of a "touch". there are some others
(i've seen a tascam unit do this too), but ardour doesn't currently
support the model of interaction used by things like the tascam (it
sends a CC message at the start and end of the touch; ardour believes
that this is what the fader itself sends).
