you need to use KeyEvents and DirectFB-0.9.11 to be able to handle
this properly. Or you could try to convince us that we need to add key
identifiers for the remaining keys. The problem is how to name them. A
possible solution would be to use the names from a US keyboard layout.
For your game that would mean that users with other keyboard layouts
would have problems to find the keys since they'd be labelled
differently than the key identifier they map to.
