    Ha... Sorry, I had buttons on my brain. I meant KEY_HOME as you suggested.

    From a quick google, I couldn't finding any specific meaning of
    BTN_TASK but it looks like xf86-input-evdev turns it into a button
    press so we may not want that one.

    I've no idea of best values but those are pretty close.
