Drawer widget: option to disable opening via swipe
The drawer widget can be opened either via a button click or the user swiping anywhere. Our users consider this unexpected behavior, and often wonder what they are looking at after an accidental swipe.

+1 I need this as well, I want to add a drawer control to a view that has a map on it. When you pan right it opens the drawer while panning the map. When you pan left it closes the drawer while panning the map. Not exactly what my users are after, so for now I can't use the drawer control until the ability to disable opening via swipe.

@john swipe to go back in iOS 7 is not configurable, so we've had to disable it for iOS 7, by default.

Also, in iOS 7, swipe right now browses back in Safari, so when someone tries to open the Drawer, the browser steps back.
Swiping to open the drawer also fires a tap/click event on a list item in the main view. Not good!
I would like that feature as well. In one of my views, I have a map that is draggable, when you move it around, the drawer opens. Being able to disable the swipe to open on that particular view or all views would be great.
