Peachy.  Note that I quickly followed up with a 3.01 release (not announced),
which fixes a minor nit in the sapphire_keymap.sh script.

Also, that script requires that you keep the source code for the driver available,
because it needs to parse the sapphire.c file to translate button names
into hex values.   It looks in /usr/src/sapphire*/sapphire.c
as well as in $HOME/sapphire*/sapphire.c for it, which is usually good enough.
