I don't know if it possible at the moment, but if not, I'll look into
how to add this... I guess something like left-right, up-down and
enter/space to select squares. I would like to add shortcuts to drop
pieces for bughouse too... e.g. select square and hit "p" to drop a
pawn... or if you use your mouse, drop the piece on the square where the
mouse is.

Unfortunately I don't have that much time at the moment, so if this
feature is not available and you don't want to code it yourself, you
might have to wait a while :)
