The only device I can get buttons to work with it is my Space Navigator.
While Blender does see button events with my serial devices, it only  
sends 'unknown button event' (or something like that) to the console.

Were you planning to create some kind menu to assign functions to buttons?
I can picture such an interface in my head, but have no idea how to code it.

I forgot that you were also working on tablet support as well. I will have  
to try it with my Bamboo.

I dont know about 'heroic'. I had the hardware and Thomas had the coding  
skill... and a great deal of patience.
The last time my fingers were typing code was back before C had ++ added to  
it. :)
