The USB HID spec does indeed say that this is the # ~ key, but it also gives
different language mappings and the US mapping is \|. So I guess mapping
it to \| isn't wrong, but this is definitely not the correct key code to
for the \| key (it should be 49).
We could change, but that might upset people in the UK that actually have that
key it seems.
