Hmm...this is a good point. I was concerned there might be programs 
relying on the current behaviour, as SDL currently DOES fill in the 
unicode field on release, but (as the post you listed demonstrates), 
this isn't reliable even in a 7-bit ASCII world.

I think I'll add that and commit the patch to CVS.  Thanks!
