It is not about what is it *is* but about what it *can be*. I suppose you can 
check them into Etoys for now and then devs interested in the larger scope 
could factor them out.

I had future smartphones and handhelds in mind when I recommended that 
KeyPress be put into Morphic-Events. Your code may appear small and trivial to 
you but for people creating morphic apps bringing up soft-keyboards just for  
a few control keys is an overkill. Sprinkling these soft buttons around or 
making custom soft-key panels is a better idea.
