Daniel made good progress on the integration of the Axis pan, tilt and
zoom device in vlc. Currently it can be controlled by mouse movement.
What is the best way to let the user configure keys and mouse events for
this device? There seem to be several ways:

1) Adding a lot of module specific command line options:
--ptzaxis-zoomin --ptzaxis-zoomout --ptzaxis-left

2) Adding a complex configuration description, as with transcoding:
--ptzaxis-keys '#keymapping{left=a,right=b,in=x,out=z}'

3) Allowing to modify the behaviour in vlcrc as with other hotkeys

How should it be done so it fits best with the rest of vlc modules
