Yes, that's the issue.

That makes it more than 80 columns, at least.

ATM only registering the same name several times can happen, and
shouldn't ever happen. But better warn than be sorry, indeed.

vt::numl is a clear LED classification convention. For triggers, I don't
see a clear convention, but at least I have never seen "::", only "-".
That makes me realize that for keyboard triggers I haven't introduced a
prefix, and only used "scrollock", "numlock", etc. Perhaps
"kbd-scrollock" etc. or (in phase with LEDs), "kbd::scrollock" etc.?
