The main strength of this would be that in this case one could make sure
that actions like typing a email or editing a softsynth while the the Mini
is listening for events don't accidentally affect the Mini (I myself tend to
find this amusing  and to result in "happy accidents" but I could imagine it
being unwanted).

So, if we know this and know the HID approach is more powerful another take
on this matter might be something like this;

Machine.hasFocus(int) //returns 1 is the mini/Audicle/console window has the
OS focus, 0 otherwise

This would allow programmers to use the more powerful implementation while
having the option to use the KBHit style behaviour, even on a per-device
basis. Sadly this feature would require a different implementation for our
three platforms which could be a drawback but aside from that it seems

Luigi; I would have loved to help you but feel unqualified to talk about
such details of OSX behaviour because iI don't have a OSX install. KBHit
seems to me like a prime canidate for system dependant behaviour.
