I'm using my qwerty/azerty keyboard for input to a game. The issue is that when
you press and hold a key, you receive repeats of the key press from the
operating system. I'd like to check the real position of a key, up or down, so I
can ignore the repeats. I can't find any way to do this.

There is a reference here
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.smalltalk.squeak.general/4034 to a fix
to do this, but the links:
Are all dead; they date from 2002.

Is there a way in the current version to do what I need, or is there a more
recent archive of fixes that I'm missing?
