If they're actual keys, you can use xf86PostKeyEvent.  If not ... just
ignore it for now.  We need to be able to map given areas of particular
devices' co-ord space to given areas of CRTCs, AFAICT.  Being able to
grab particular (obviously non-overlapping) areas would probably be
quite useful for shortcuts, etc, but this may be overkill: maybe we
just want key events, rather than Button/Motion events on shortcut
