Android - Any way to test Gestures on the Emulator?

Was wondering if there's any way to test Gestures (eg: Fling) on the Emulator.

I saw a project on google code that lets people simulate the accelerometer, but none of Gestures.

Something similar has already been asked here:

Fling gesture detection on grid layout

I can confirm that it works because I implemented an onFling listener following that example

Answer 2

Any gestures that don't require multi-touch should work fine on the emulator. So for example Fling is going to work fine on the emulator, where pinch-zoom is not.
