Prevent blob jittering.

A problem that is often faced (esp. in optical MT setups) is that of
jitterish BLOBs caused by bad camera characteristics. With this module
you can get rid of that jitter. You just define a threshold
`jitter_distance` in your config, and all touch movements that move
the touch by less than the jitter distance are considered 'bad'
movements caused by jitter and will be discarded.
