illume's code can use it's internal keyboard, do nothing at all (and just wait
until some external keyboard  is run - like qpe does) or run a keyboard process
for you. it even will queue multiple keyboards if more than 1 was launched -
but it works with a first-come-first-served policy there. the gui config is
simple (chose none, internal default or some of N others). the gui will list
any .desktop files it found that have "Keyboard" in the categories list for
the .desktop. but of course this config dialog isn't really meant to be
supported. not in ASU/2008.8 so it's more of a "if you somehow find it and get
it up - use at your own risk".
