Isn't that what is supposed to do KEY_SWITCHVIDEOMODE? Humm... I've got
a feeling that it's not clear where the documentation is or that
documentation is missing ;-)

IIRC, about a month ago someone already asked for precision on the
meaning of some KEY_* . It would probably worth documenting more each
key. More specifically, it could be interesting to decide if the keycode
has to be associated to the physical symbol displayed on the key or
associated to the function that the user (developer) expects when
pressing this key.
