Trackpad doesn't produce mouse clicks when tapped

I don't know whether it's hardware or software -- or a deliberate design choice versus a defect that got lost among all the other touchpad troubles.
I've gotten used to touchpads on my laptops that let you tap the touchpad to generate a
left-mouse-click. This means you can not only drag the mouse around, but also do 90% of
your clicking, without your index finger leaving the pad. For human interface it's a win. (It's also close to the expected user interface for touchscreens, if and when we make one.) I tried it on XO and it doesn't work.
