+ Returns the raw, unfiltered positions for the touch point. The positions are in native screen coordinates.
To get local coordinates you can use mapFromGlobal() of the QWindow returned by QTouchEvent::window().
\note Returns an empty list if the touch device's capabilities do not include QTouchDevice::RawPositions.

+ changes the positions in this list will not reflect the current orientation (unlike pos(),
+ screenPos(), etc.) and will always be reported in the native orientation.
