I've not tested your keyboard due to some python errors (etk.TextView
wasn't recognized, and I had not time to workaround/fix it; however the
idea is really nice to me. I'd like to get a keyboard exactly like that
(and with a dictionary-based typo check like the illume standard
keyboard does)!

I think that just adding to the Illume keyboard the ability of going
fullscreen (after rotating to landscape) with an its own text field to
be used as a temporary text field would be cool!
