No.  :)
I mean that literally -- I don't think I _can_ give you a best 
solution; it's not that I'm not willing to do so.

It comes down to exactly what you're trying to do (and I don't know 
that), how you like to structure programs, etc.  You could probably do 
this with classes -- make a HandleKeyboard class, then instantiate one 
of those for each keyboard.

I think the best way to find the best solution is to go ahead and get 
it working, using whatever method(s) you can.  Use that to learn about 
chuck, figure out exactly what you want to do, etc.  Once that's all 
working, ignore your current program(s) and start again from scratch.  
Spend a week just thinking about the general design before programming 

Of course, I've only taken one course on software engineering in my 
life, and that was in 1998.  Nor have I done any programming since 
then, up until a few months ago.  So I don't claim to be an expert.  :) 
    But that's how I would go about this.

IMHO, the biggest problem is in deciding exactly what you want.  Once 
you've done that, the actual design and programming is pretty easy.

Good luck,
