My point was that I do not like having to edit the source code or
configurations of all apps I use just to be able to scroll efficiently
on whatever keyboard I may have. Whether that is done by all apps
written in C including a standard keys.h or by using some X-dependant
dynamic xmodmap on steroids, I want to be able to configure (some
subset of) keybindings centrally. If I need to set up my own repo,
patching every app for use with certain keyboard... apps should rather
be cross-keyboard.
