right now - the keyboard (internal one) may or may not be enabled depending what
svn rev u get. i have not been updating the svnrev in asu.dev because i KNOW
what revs have it enabled or not. i need to make this a config option - i know,
but right now it's a 1 function call to create the internal kbd.

for me - the kbd works reliably with the internal keyboard. i have a test app
that can request the keyboard "automatically" (and i can have it request
different kinds of kbds) or request no kbd - at least on my desktop it works
100% of the time beautifully. i have run it on my freerunner too - and it works.

so you'll have to wait for dust to settle here.
