  By the way, I was wondering: how are conflicts handled ? I mean:
can two interfaces/modules register to handle a key ? If so, isn't
there a risk that they both do something (which wouldn't be nice in all
circumstances, for instance two GUIs) ? If not, how do we decide which
handler is enabled, and how do we handle the case "two GUIs", naturally
registering for the same events (that's easier because the reporter is
also the handler, but is it always the case ?) ? and so on...

  Maybe the special case of GUIs must be set appart (that's probably
what you had in mind actually :) ...

  Just raising this before going back to real life work ;-)...

  Sounds nice to me :)
