This synchronizes the remote display to the main on the virtual keyboard. Many remotes don't have enough buttons to use the virtual keyboard independently.

The displays show a panning window of the picker area. This saves about 1000 bytes on targets with remotes by not duplicating the keyboard picker buffer.

I'm not sure what to do with paging, input would be appreciated. For now I took it out and just made one big picker area, which allows the preservation of the layout in the custom keyboard layout file.
