We seriously need to sit down and (1) spec and (2) implement finaly a
real solution, e.g. based on USB scan codes or some superset of it and
feed those to wsmux directly from the hardware driver, and also create
a X keyboard driver to receive them in the same format from wsmux, and
then not go through the horrifying levels of indirection inside X.

I want to run a sun kbd and a usb one through the same mux with a single
X server!
