Entirely possible; I had to use some other value than the default for the
Lombard as well.

It depends on the actual type of keyboard used in the machine (ANSI, ISO,
language perhaps). The information about default address and handler ID is
preserved by the kernel but not exposed to user space via /dev/adb - we
could just use that info to find the keyboard otherwise. Ideas welcome -
the sanest thing might be to implement /dev/adb ioctls and export some
device info that way. /proc/bus/adb might be another way (it's in adb.c's
TODO list for ages).
Note to Paul or BenH: receiving a particular devices' autopoll data is
done by the new input layer these days, no need to list that as TODO.
