The problems like Key-down / Key-up and combinations, including
repeat, double clicks and so on all can be killed by considering them
events. This is already done in button.c and it can be extended if
necessary. Then you may call it mapping events to functions. It's just
the same.

But what do you mean with persistent quick-screens? Like hitting F2
and the menu doesn't disappear unless another button has pressed? That
is a good example how a concept of assignable keys can help us. We
simply make a new key scheme that becomes valid while the quick-screen
is used and return to the wps key scheme when the selection is done.
