Replacing neod

I've been using Hackable one for the last few weeks.
I love it, except for the neod.
Most of you know what I'm talking about.
It's the app that controls button presses, that like to crash and keeps your
CPU running at 100%

Well, My project for today was working on replacing it.
This is what I have so far:

They are written in python.
Just download them to you're '/usr/bin/' folder and make them executable
then edit '/usr/bin/x'  comment out the line for neod and add these lines in
it's place:

ko-power will detect when the power button is pressed and it will run
ko-sys-menu is a very easy to edit menu select a command from a drop down
box and press the button below it to run the command

ko-aux will start up a keyboard on aux button press
by default it will start up ko-keypad another scipt I wrote that can be
found here
if you want to use ko-keypad download it to your /usr/bin/ folder and make
it executable
if you profer to use matchbox-keyboard edit ko-aux and uncomment the 3 or 4
lines around where is says ko-keypad
then comment out the line that has ko-keypad in it.

That's it,
I just finished working on these 3 scripts
I haven't tested them much.
Feed back would be great.
