[vlc-devel] VLC keyboard events [OS X]

Hi everybody,

In the OS X version of VLC, you can pause/unpause a movie by pressing  
the space bar. Also, when in full screen mode, hitting the escape key  
switches to windowed mode. However, this only works as long as the  
vout view can catch and respond to keydown events which means it has  
to be the active window. IMO, this is one of the more annoying UI  
bugs since the controller window is quite often the active window,  
sometimes even in full screen mode.

I noticed that VLCControllerWindow already delegates keystrokes to  
VLCMain in order to be passed to vlc. However, the events in question  
should be handled by the Cocoa client. So, I added a key event  
handler to VLCControls which works beautifully. Patch against HEAD  
(r15083) is attached.
