YEP, agree! And you can bet who's first to shoot someone when missing "my" 
terminal ;-)
I think it's a bad idea to have no manually on/off kbd, especially for 
terminal. Also wonder how to play minesweeper - some idea how to mark mines? 
right mouse button???
Please keep a functional(!) terminal to use with touchscreen, as a last resort 
for hackers when far from home. Don't mind taking me 2 minutes to enter one 
cmd, but really drives me nuts to figure how to get around not having 
any "special" chars like "/", "cursor up" etc. PLEASE don't start 
another "that's no valid usecase"-debate!
As long as there's no app for it, I just happily will use "iwlist eth0 scan" 

ps: still wondering why the &@§#multipress-kbd is not producing "/" etc in 
OM-terminal (ok, OT;), due to broken "#" key. "\" is an especially hard one, 
even with using c&p. Incredibly annoying :-(
