My humble request is to add the ability to select which fn
keys require the fn key modifier to be pressed. For example,
I like the brightness and sound keys how they function
without having to press the fn key. On the other hand, I
would like the num lock, video mirroring, & keyboard light
controls to require the fn key modifier leaving them wide
open for assigning to say exposé.

Thanks!

    it would take a little more work to figure out what machine it is on
    to display the right checkboxes.
    for example, the Lombard, Pismo, All iBooks, and the 400/500 MHz
    TiBooks only have F1-F6 occupied.
    some revision of the TiBook (i'm not sure which) added the
    mirroring key on F7.
    the AlBooks with backlight keyboards also have F8 and F9 taken
    over.

    given the above, we have 3 different situations for what FKeys to
    enable. i'm not saying that it can't be done (i haven't looked at the
    code and i don't plan to) i'm just giving the developers a heads up
    that not all keyboards are created equal ;)

    Seems not easy, but I will study it.
