Unless you want to be an alpha tester for the [hid] object (which would
be much appreciated :), I would suggest using [linuxevent] for now.
Each USB keyboard should have its out /dev/input/event? device, so you
would have one [linuxevent] object for each keyboard. This is a lower
level than getting the info from X.
IIRC, the keyboard keys are not yet fully mapped with the [hid] object.
Its not the most exciting project, it basically involves writing a
lookup table to translate Linux input key types to [hid] key types.

"Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a more
direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in practice, it
can change entire economies."
