We already did this since Mandriva LE 2005. We preconfigured a bunch of
multimedia keyboard in gnome-keybinding-properties for most common keys.
Unfortunately, multimedia keyboard mapping is like hell : there are at
least 120 different multimedia keys specified in xorg file (more than
standard keys) and almost each keyboard vendor is using a different key.
We have pre-configured GNOME keybinding for actions which are already
available with most commonly used keycode, but the work should be done
in x.org, to rationalise keycode.
