I've been fiddling around with sonypid so that the jogdial scrolls,
the jogdial button acts as mouse button 1, Fn-F5 runs xsetbrit, Fn-F4
runs gmix, Fn-F3 (un)mutes, and the capture button runs xawtv using
the MotionEye Video4Linux driver.  Almost as much functionality as
under Windows :-)

Shame suspend-to-disk is still a "future", though...

I think the "stuff to run when someone hits a magic key" part really
needs to be driven from a per-user rc file - one or two of the other
jogdial drivers have this already.

Stelian's drivers are in the -ac kernel source tree now, BTW
