Thanks, that helps.  Next comes a question that might sound off-topic.
Would it be easy and would it be sensible to teach esekeyd these

To be clear, I am not a DD, so please do not feel obligated to answer
me as a hoop before getting triggerhappy uploaded.  It won't help. :)

What I am trying to figure out is whether esekeyd and triggerhappy
occupy different niches or if it is an accident of history that you
are not already working on the same codebase.  IIUC triggerhappy is
very young so there might be a chance to merge or make the user
interfaces compatible before users grow irrationally attached to the
quirks of one or the other.
