If there is going to be an option for this, I'd appreciate an alternate approach as one of the options: look into how Irssi ConnectBot (on android) has done a separate url scan button for this functionality.

1) GPM on the server
2) Translate touch events on the screen to whatever terminal control characters GPM uses
Already existing touch events like copy/paste and URL touching would have to be rethought in order to avoid gesture conflicts.
Irssi ConnectBot on Android has a top-right menu for url-scanning, copying and pasting (an approach I'm quite fond of), but even that would conflict with text selection for copying in the case of implementing "mouse emulation".
