It seems that only SOME characters above the letters on the swype keyboard can be "longer-pressed" down to a space such as:

"_
?_
'_
,_

But it would be nice to do this with the OTHER longer-press characters such as with #, @, the numbers 1-9 and 0, +, etc, so that when the "2" pops up above the "t" key and you swype down to the space bar you get "2_" instead of swype thinking you wanted to swype "tv_"

THANKS!!
