Some fixes already: r12628 + r12626 + r12624. See also #1172.

Looks like there aren't virtual keycodes for most of the keys, so we will have to use something like this How to convert ASCII character to CGKeyCode.

Here are some of the missing keys: exclam quotedbl sterling dollar percent asciicircum ampersand asterisk parenleft parenright braceleft braceright underscore colon at numbersign asciitilde comma period slash less greater question notsign bar 'fr' layout: eacute egrave ccedilla agrave dead_circumflex one_superior two_superior section percent mu dead_diaresis degree currency horizconnector periodcentered dead_belowdot exclamdown oneeighth threeeights fiveeights seveneights trademark plusminus degree questiondown
