I THINK THIS IS A FIRST!--I can't remember the last time I heard a
"manufacturer" admitting to a problem like this.  It shows, to me at
least, that The folks at Amiga are open and willing to discuss their
"problems" in front of everyone!--Hooray!

Okay, how about requests?  I would like to be able to access all of the
"devices" that are supported by the OS.  I'm able to open RAW: as random
but for the life of I can't figure out how to "poll" the window.  What I
wanted to do was implement an AmigaBASIC program to take advantage of
RAW:'s escape-seqence generation and remove AmigaBASIC's massaging of my
keystrokes (can't determine that the ALT key was pressed in conjuncion with
another character, etc.).  Maybe I shouldn't be using RAW: but I think I
should be able to; maybe RAW: buffers its input but I should be able to
unbuffer it if I want; maybe the standard AmigaBASIC keyboard handler
is nice because I have one keycode to correspond to one key but what if
I want to extend my programs to utilize *all* keycodes.

If the facility already exists, lemme know; if I'm wrong, lemme know;
if...well I think you get the idea.
