HidIn with mouse and keyboard support is on its way (probably next release), and a new HidOut object is also in the works, which would allow easy programmatic access to keyboard LEDs and also force feedback effects in joysticks.

Actually I think it might; i dont have my mac handy so i cant check at the moment.  If it does that would make it not so tricky, contrary to my previous email.  Nobody in Mac Dev land really talks about it though, and the current mac HID stuff in chuck uses a different API, so i forgot about that... :/
