Excuse me but IMHO this is not a good desing, because I imagine
connecting multi input-devices as practicly the exact principle of
having multi-monitors, we can do display cloning, spanning, allowing
multi seat, binding a virtual desktop to an individual monitor, etc

The point is Haiku can do the same but in the input-server side and
not hardconding two keyboards into one range, this shall be useful for
music editing such as we can have a "regular keyboard" and another
"shortcuts' keyboard" and another "special macros keyboard" and why
not "midi-remapped keyboard", all working together in the same time,
it would be an extermely low-cost killer DAW. Of course other features
would be possible such multi-seat keyboard,
application-reserved-keyboard etc ...

What do you think ?
