Using a custom keyboard scanner is in my eyes far beyond the scope of cc65.
More than 99% of all programs don't use a mouse. Without a mouse there are no
problems. This is one side. The other is that there are custom kernals that
support a changed keyboard layout. Using such a kernal with a custom keyboard
scanner will actually disable it.
