Hello Peter,

In principle, I fully agree with you. But I wrote it for fun, I only
forward ButtonPress/Release, KeyPress/Releasa and MotionNotify and it
works so nicely (my family is quite happy), that for the moment I do not
need any other solution Even my 11 years old son run the 'xtele' app on
his FreeBSD netbook (an Acer C720) and was surprised how easy this is to
control the TV channels in FF on the TV screen with this.
