Like I said, "coding experiments that are considered, in the long
term, junk".  "Junk" doesn't mean the experiment doesn't yield
information.  Thus do exploratory programming and test code, just
don't get attached to it.  And remember to get information from it.

Myself, I've decided to start writing test keyboard (& 8042 control)
code.  Anybody have odd keyboards? (non-English? >101/102 key?)
Anybody think we need to support pre-AT keyboards?
