It strikes me that Chuck may not be good for mixing key numbers with  
the translated "AsCII" numbers. Ir seems one has to make choice of  
what to use. When mixing, one may want to pick up the event first and  
looking at both the key and the (eventual) Unicode number.

So when doing a
   Hid kb;
one would want a function msg.char() that returns an "int": say -1 if  
no character, or the Unicode code point (character number) otherwise.
