GPL Keyboard Mapper

I have a fairly open mind on how to achieve this project and will defer to successful coder opinion on this. Project: To create an opernsource (final app will be released GPL and passed to the X foundation for possible inclusion in the X distribution) special keymap edditor for UNIX / Linux. Application will enable users of extended function keyboards (have extra buttons such as internet browsing, e-mail, play/pause etc of music and so on) to map their keyboard in a freehand manner as well as contribute (in the same manner perhaps as FreeDB music lists are maintained) their settings to a tree. I realies that not all applications will map exactly the same, so I suggest that the 'special keys' that are not part of some recognised keybinding RFC type thing are bindable to key combinations. This will allow a user to specify functional key bindings for the selected applications. Example XMMS music player User will be able to specify that the 'play button' is bound to this application, and will be able to bind the play/pause, stop and fwd/back keys to the keybindings of this app (assuming that xmms uses keybindings of course... mind if this project completes OK and they don't, they pretty soon will do to support it). The purpose is to allow any keyboard that is supported at a basic level (the normal keys work) to be extended without requiring special keyboard drivers.

## Deliverables

2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):

a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.

b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
