Thanks! Is there a daemon that I can -HUP or do I need to restart for the
changes to take effect?

Going back to the original point. It would be best if there was a config
file where one could specify all the different keypress events (short AUX,
short power, long AUX, double AUX, power-AUX, etc) and bind actions to them.
The actions would be: suspend, shutdown, lock, close app, show/hide
keyboard, send a custom signal to app, etc.
