Thanks for this. Never came across that doc.
Got the homepage but no links there. Go figure.

My store concern is not about the UIApplication subclassing. It is is
about picking internal GSEvents.

In fact I am finding myself reimplementing a keyboard driver from raw
scancodes and modifers. At this point I wonder if it is is best to
craft it inside the C code or just pass the scancodes to the image and
deal with that in the sensor and handmorph. Or do some Slang and
generate the code.
