 What other parts are you refering to? I use pbbuttonsd and wouldn't
know what else is as convenient to use the function key things to
control backlight, volume and keyboard lights.

 Maybe there are other "parts of the system" that offer the same
functionality, I don't know, but then again there is also elvis and nvi
which provide quite similar functionality, left aside all the other text

 Why do you think it's not?
