I don't know.  I'm experienced with cross-platform development and I have a
Windows 7 dev environment available via a Bootcamp partition, so in theory I
could check.  It seems likely to work, but it has not been verified.  It's a
PITA to power down OS X and fire up Windows, so I don't do it very often.  No
X Windows box immediately available, either.

I don't see any unit tests.   Are there any?

I'm not prepared to offer an opinion on that, as I'm not yet sufficiently
familiar with the code base.

If we were to make such an attempt, I'd suggest preserving the existing
interface while changing the implementation.  And of course it would seem wise
to secure the blessing of Mr. Puckette in advance as to the general approach.

That seemed logical to me and I attempted to figure it out, but came up short.
Grepping the source for "%k" didn't turn up anything.  Grepping for "%K"
turned up the pd_bindings.tcl file, and I hacked from there.
