Do you have any proposal for model names?
AFAICT there are 3 keyboard models:
  - macintosh_old  (ADB)
  - macintosh  (keycodes are similar to PC ones)
  - macbook    (ditto, except for 2 keys: <TLDE>=94 and <LSGT>=49)
My feeling is that macbook name is misleading (because older *book needs
it too), and new models all are of this type, so it could be the default.
In 0.8-12exp1 I renamed those models into:
  - macintosh_old  (ADB)
  - macintosh_old2  (keycodes are similar to PC ones)
  - macintosh  (ditto, except for 2 keys: <TLDE>=94 and <LSGT>=49)
I need help to find good model names, of course macintosh_old2 is only
a temporary name to make experiments.
