right now, u'll need to build yourself. the nightly builds will still have
qtopia's keyboard running and basically will clash will illume. there is an
environment var u can use to turn off qtopia's kbd - forgot what it is tho...
u'll have to set it in qpe's startup script.

also the config is available in a gui but that gui config will go soon enough.
there is a dbus api too - but having to run complex dbus commands by hand is
rather painful.
