    Adding LED routing and using keyboard levels is so clearly The Right Thing.

    We already allow the LEDs to be programmed; we should probably just
    have, for each LED, the ability to program it off/on/flashing/connected
    to modifier #X.

    The current KDSETLED/KDGETLED interface is of course too limited for
    this -- we need an interface with at least a byte per LED.
