Which parts are unnecessary?

Also, I just discovered that if you press one of these keys in a window 
that doesn't handle what the key is bound to, it gets into an infinite 
event redelivery loop and blows out the stack.  I don't *think* the 
patch causes it, but obviously using these multimedia keys is not safe 
until the problem is fixed.  I'm starting to wonder if there isn't 
something wrong with Myth's top-level keyPressEvent handling, because I 
don't think the default Qt event loop behavior will redeliver an event 
indefinitely if it's ignored.  I'll look in to it some more.  If you let 
me know which parts you consider unnecessary, I'll remove them from the 
next version of the patch as well.
