[Debian] Auxlaunch

I wanted a simple, very finger-friendly app launcher for my Freerunner
running Debian. I also wanted to access it using the "Aux" button. So, I
mixed code from the PyGTK hello world example with code from
matchbox-keyboard-toggle and came up with "Auxlaunch". A screenshot and
download link is at aliasid.googlepages.com/auxlaunch if you're interested.

At first, it minimizes and waits for the "Aux" button to be pressed. Then,
it pops up full screen and shows 3 large buttons. You use the up and down
buttons to change the top button. Press the top button and the selected app
starts. You can configure the choices by editing the ".auxlaunchrc" text
file. I added an item for "Suspend" ("apm -s"), too.

Anyway, thought I'd share. Comments and questions are welcome. My apologies
if this is the wrong way to announce. Thanks to Openmoko for the Freerunner
and thanks to the Debian folks for, well, Debian,
