Ok, I would like to know more - some pointers would be useful.
Is it closer to kernel kbd handling?

I hear what you are saying and agree completely. I think we have been
aware of the problem but have not had the resources to address them yet.
We certainly have some things we need to learn from them. I think
this may be something that needs to be pushed higher up to FESCO or the
Board, but together with L10N project I think we can help to lay the
groundwork for that by providing good input, examples and ideas.
