It's not my intention to force anything. I just want to make it *easy*
to do things right, because otherwise I fear it's not going to be done.
Of course, if it turns out that my idea of what's "right" is not
universally accepted (and I'm grateful if that is pointed out to me),
then there's nothing I can do but shut up, I guess... :)

Certainly. Personally, I'm happy as long as it's *possible* to do things
right. In this particular case that means, given a layout key code,
present it to the user in a way that uniquely identifies the key to him.
That means, being able to distinguish between keyboard and keypad keys
that type the same character. And I see no other way for this than the
magic bit we're trying to get rid of...
