but i've been wondering if perhaps it should.

given that sugar is now multi-platform, does it make sense for
sugar itself to be managing the special XO keyboard keys?  seems like
pulling that support out would let it be reused by non-sugar
distros more readily.

what happens when you press F9 through F12 when running SoaS?
(i think those are the volume and brightness keys on the XO.)
