Are we going to lose 'mouseover' on touchscreen computers?

What user interface 'technique' is available (or may come to be available) on touch screen based devices that replicates the 'mouseover' function of a traditional computer?

I'm trying to think ahead a bit, to the time (soon now, I guess) when many visitors to my websites are viewing on an iPad-like device. I've used 'hover' and 'mouseover' quite a bit in designing navigation elements, but as touch screen can't 'see' a hovering finger, this obviously isn't going to work. Is there nothing to it but to re-design navigation so that everything is visible all the time? Anything coming down the pipe for this?
