A very simple but perhaps useable solution may be to use the existing
navigation keys, up and down for soom, left and right for left and right.
See the dvdnav module for how to do this. I guess this is a safe solution
since on sane man will use the ptzaxis module while playing dvd or vcd or
anything else with menus on it.
