Why do you say that? 
The attachment did have data from "virgin" os860 and 1.2.0 dev builds (os18-os22). It even indicates if Sugar or Gnome was used at the given 5-7 minutes segment.
The puppy data was because I was testing the touchpad power-cycle idea.
Could be easily done in official/dev builds too but tried to keep them as pristine as possible.

As I mentioned, better testing can be done using kbdshim debug data (assuming they do not affect behavior), but without a way to test in F9 builds the comparison will always be inconclusive and (correctly) labeled "subjective".
However, if anybody thinks that recording/knowing touchpad spur events pet touchpad transmitted bids could be of any value and triggers another look at the touchpad, I could try it.
