  Well, I was thinking more of a configurable action - either in rules.yaml
(that covers some user cases) or by exposing the functionality in a known
way that allows apps to override the normal usage.
  Also, there could be different uses depending on whether there is one
press, two presses or a long press. Maybe a long press could be used as a
screen lock - leaving the other two for context based use.
