How can we make PadKeys better?

hold-and-drag-down to access shifted character

GBoard (I think) recently released a feature where a key that produces a different character when shifted lets you access that alternate character by dragging down on the key. Now, this tends to conflict with your keyboard’s gesture-based typing (where you trace out words); but I think something reasonably close could be implemented by requiring the typist to hold the key as long as they have to in order to raise a popup menu; _then_, in order to access the shifted characer, they swipe down from there.
