From the rather rudimentary look I gave at the other screencast keys
addon a while ago, it appeared to suffer from all the same major issues
as the main screencast keys..
I do kind of like having blender specific info like last operator etc.
displayed, but I'd prefer to have modal keypresses and display in non-3D
views. I've yet to find any external keypress displaying program (for
linux) I'm happy with.. So unless anyone has any suggestions it seems
I'm stuck with screencast keys for the time being :P
