Kinetic effect

.. versionadded:: 1.7.0

The :class:`KineticEffect` is the base class that is used to compute the
velocity out of a movement. When the movement is finished, the effect will
compute the position of the movement according to the velocity, and reduce the
velocity with a friction. The movement stop until the velocity is 0.

Conceptually, the usage could be::

    >>> effect = KineticEffect()
    >>> effect.start(10)
    >>> effect.update(15)
    >>> effect.update(30)
    >>> effect.stop(48)

Over the time, you will start a movement of a value, update it, and stop the
movement. At this time, you'll get the movement value into
:attr:`KineticEffect.value`. On the example i've typed manually, the computed
velocity will be::

    >>> effect.velocity

After multiple clock interaction, the velocity will decrease according to
:attr:`KineticEffect.friction`. The computed value will be stored in
:attr:`KineticEffect.value`. The output of this `value` could be::

    # ...
