Really useful, I use your script for my DVD, Carsten :) , it really
helps, but yes it has some issues.

Would be nice to have some generic way to show this, and notify when
you're holding/releasing a key (maybe is tricky but useful as well).

I tweaked yours a little bit though, wanted it a bit bigger
and.....yeah pink/purple.
Snapshot from one of my DVD videos:

Hope this gets somewhere, would be very handy!
