There are a *lot* of power-user switches that it would be nice to make
runtime-tunable, like maybe deinterlacing.  If someone digs in to doing
this, might I suggest an extensible framework, such that you might use,
eg, "-" as a prefix key, and then allow people to allocate the
following character for the function they want to export to that
access environment?

Yes, clearly, that approach makes using a non-keyboard remote harder,
but it seems like it would make dozens of other things easier.
