Waiting to get my Nexus 4 and then will give this a try. Overall, I find gesture keyboard input most useful if you have to use only one hand to type, otherwise it's just faster to use two fingers and type normally.

Agreed, that's why it's nice to see this on my favorite two thumb keyboard as well. Gives a good option for either. It seems to work pretty well too, but I typically type anyway, not slide/swipe/swype.

Auto space doesn't work if you have 2 or more languages installed

That's not true. Got three languages installed and auto spaces works, without any problems.

I've been using swiftkey for a fair while now and it's a pretty decent keyboard, my only real gripe is that it keeps autocorrecting me when I use colloquialisms and swear words (which their authors need to be reminded ARE a legitimate part of the English language). Even given that gripe though i'd recommend it to most people. I however have never really been all that comfortable with gestural based keyboards
