Post the example code and someone will probably look at it. If it is
easy, I'll do it, especially if there is already a cross-platform
Also, [hid] and [hidio] both have a cross-platform event/message
scheme that is translated into the native platform messages. I think
for [send_key] it use an existing scheme, like from [key]/[keyup]/
[keyname] or [hidio].
