I am interfacing a 5 button panel to MicroWindows under Linux. I have a
device driver which is opened in the WM application. I take the button
input and send to the focus window as keyboard messages. I have no new
interfaces.

I can test my application with a keyboard or a button module. No
difference in application code.
