 Here is a little enhancement to the DeskCalc app :

 It originally couldnt use alternative labels (math symbols -except pi
 letter-) for the keypad because every label is used "as is" and passed
 directly to the math parser.

 When I discussed with jscipione, and after some code browsing we suggested
 using another a new field to store the key "function". The thing is there
 is already a field called "code" and used to store the label except for
 the key "=" which is replaced with "\n", so I assumed that the person who
 made that wanted some separation but did it for one key. This naturally
 got me into using the "code" field and treat the return key like any
 another one.

 The details about how it works : in the keypad description string, a
 separator char (I chose the '|') is used between the "code" and the
 "actual label", if there is no separator given, the same code is assumed
 to be the label.
