Yeah. This is to maintain ABI compatibility. Technically, events have
private internal data, and you can use gdk_event_get_device(); to get
keyboard device for a key event.

This isn't documented very well; we should perhaps clean this up.

I guess current GTK3 Ruby bindings do not allow event_get_device() for
keyboard events :-(

As a workaround, why not write a ruby extension with a trivial function that wraps event_get_device? I don't have experience writing ruby extensions (we use Python), but judging by it doesn't seem very complicated.

Once the ruby bindings get proper support for it, you can retire the extension.
