In the most effective General Assemblies that I've participated in, the most commonly used hand signals were:
*Twinkle fingers - For expressing support / agreement. At sudo room, we have already established a practice of snapping to express agreement, which is my personal preference :
*Wrap it Up - "Wagon wheel" with index fingers pointing toward each other, to indicate that the current speaker is taking too much time, reiterating the same point, and should generally try to wrap it up.
*Direct response - "gun fingers" to indicate a quick clarification of the current point or a question to further clarification. Not to be used for opinion- or emotion-laden responses / points of view.
*Point-of-process - As per the triangle of thumbs and index fingers shown in the top-right corner of the image, and aptly described by Vicky above.

*We will spread the hand signals idea around as a Sudo Room social meme, subliminally convincing everyone of how great hand signals are for our organizational health.
