Argh! Sorry about that, didn't mean to mess up your sequencer

disappear for this release. HID support underwent a major rehaul
since the last release, for a variety of wholesome reasons, but, for
lack of any better explanation, some things got overlooked in all of
that. This will definitely be in the next release, and in fact I
can probably get you a preview to use with working hat switches until
