 Having just tested the "opkg install illume-config" workaround for #1654,
 I understand better now that it indeed doesn't address the problem of the
 full qwerty keyboard missing.
 It is a bit more useable as the qwerty keyboard can appear right away at a
 single tap on the "qwerty" button in the top row, but then, the rest of
 its limitations are still there.

 We indeed need "a full qwerty keayboard", even if it's easier to make it
